"Volunteers are paid in six figures... S-M-I-L-E-S." ~Gayla LeMaire
I love being a Wish Granter for Make-a-Wish. I mean, first off, the title "Wish Granter" sort of makes me feel like a fairy who goes around with my magic wand and makes people happy. "Your wish is my command!"
But seriously, the fact that I get the chance to help make wishes come true for seriously ill kiddos and their families? It really is the best gig on the planet.
This weekend, I was able to help make a wish come true for the sweetest boy.
Unfortunately, privacy rules make me unable to give you any details on the kiddo, his wish, or share any pictures. But let me just tell you that getting to see him smiling and laughing and surrounded by toys and balloons and a whole house full of people who clearly love him to pieces....well that's a picture that I'm never going to forget.
I cannot encourage you enough to support the Make-a-Wish organization. They make dreams come true for sick kids, and give precious memories to families who more than deserve them. A wish is granted every 38 minutes. Those are a lot of lives that MAW is making better! To read some of the wish stories, you can click here.
You can donate money, donate airline miles, or get involved as a volunteer. It's super easy and I cannot think of a more rewarding organization to be involved with. For more info, feel free to contact me or check out the Make-a-Wish website.
