Make – A – Wish Foundation
Written by Greg on April 30, 2013
Make a wish foundation is one of the greatest charitable organizations in America. Since the early 1980s, the foundation has provided a bright spot in an otherwise dim outlook for many many people.
The organization provides a mechanism to allow children to have life-threatening conditions to actually “make a wish” and have that wish come true. The participation in the Houston community has been awesome over the last 30 years. Many professional athletes have donated their time not only to help raise money for the foundation but to help with the children.
In the early 1980s, numerous Houston Oilers players routinely participated and Make-A-Wish events to raise money for the foundation. Today the charity flourishes due not only from support by celebrities such as baseball players, football players, film and other sports and entertainment personalities and also from many local businesses.
To date, well over 200,000 wishes have been granted through this incredible organization. There are many ways in which you can participate with Make-A-Wish, volunteering, donated money, adopting a wish and even donating your frequent flyer mileage.
The incredible power of this organization cannot be overstated. To give a child hope and positivity in a time that may seem hopeless and desperate is an incredible blessing for not only those who give to Make-A-Wish but also those who run the organization.
