                     Making Wishes Come True!

 

 

Make-A-Wish

The wish-granting movement began in Phoenix, Arizona when two law enforcement officers learned about a young boy, Chris Greicius, who yearned to be a police officer, but would probably die of leukemia at age seven. With permission from the Arizona Department of Public Safety, Officer Ron Cox and U.S. Customs Agent Tommy Austin began to make that dream come true.

 

 

From then 1991-2000 the Make-A-Wish

 

Foundation grew very fast and spread. 

 

 

The Make-A-Wish Foundation has

 

their headquarters located in Phoenix, AZ

 

The founders are Scott StahlLinda Bergendahl-

How it all Started

 

 

The mission of the Make-A-Wish Foundation is to

 

grant the wishes of children with life-threatening

 

medical conditions to enrichthe human experience with hope,

 

strength and joy.

 

The children that the Make-A-Wish Foundation serves

 

have very lifethreatening sicknesses.

 

 

The Make-A-Wish Foundation helps children going

 

through treatment and who might not survive their

 

sickness by granting almost anything they can wish for

 

to help the children and their families granting the wish

 

that the child

 

makes. 

Mission Statement

 

I fully support the Make-A-Wish Foundation and I love

 

everything that they are doing. The reasons I support the 

 

Make-A-Wish Foundation are the following; 

 

 

1. Make-A-Wish helps a wide variety of children

 

and families, regardless of their backgrounds and

 

situations difficult time in their life. 

 

 

2. Make-A-Wish helps a wide variety of children and

 

families, regardless of their backgrounds and situations.

 

 

3. Make-A-Wish is filled with kind and generous people

 

who truly care about making a difference.

 

 

 

4.Wish Kids help to bring out the best in their

 

communities. Their stories are an inspiration to all.

 

 

My favorite part of all of this though, is that Make-A-Wish has

 

granted wishes for over 250,000 children and the numbers are

 

still going up  every day!

 

Every small donation and every little or big act of

 

support makes a big diffrence.
