April 29th World Wish Day
7-year old Chris Greicius wanted to be a Police Officer when he grew up. Unfortunately, his leukemia was going to prevent this, but someone made his dream come true, eventually forming into the Make-A-Wish Foundation in 1980.
Today there are 200 wishes granted a year in over 48 countries. Some of us will never get to do the things we hoped we could do, some of us won’t live long enough to see our dreams come true. But with your help, children all over the world might at least get a glimpse of it.
How to celebrate – Give to the Make-A -Wish Foundation. Donate time to Make-A-Wish or another local charity.
