Happy World Wish Day

savethedate_worldwishdayWhat happened on April 29th in 1980?

It was the day of the wish that inspired the founding of Make-A-Wish and the global wish-granting movement. Over 30 years later and hundreds of thousands of wishes have been granted…but thousands more await.

You know what they say about fear? If you put a face on it, you can beat it. Or if you put a face on it, you can use it.

Instead of fear, use hope, make a wish, that’s what these kids do, right? And the Make-A-Wish foundation does this every day for kids all over the country. It’s a beautiful thing. :)

Here’s a recent wish…

Hatcher was born with Down syndrome – restricting his verbal communication skills. Soon after, he was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia.

Yesterday, Hatcher, age 3, could only grunt signaling his hunger or sleepiness. Today, he’s mimicking dolphin sounds and blowing raspberries in the water.

It’s not about fear for these kids. It’s about wishes. Make a wish today and while you’re at it, help a child have their wish fulfilled.
