|Join me in my efforts to support Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina!|
|Having recently celebrated a birthday in January, 2017 marks the last year of my 20s. I've experienced so much this decade - studied abroad, graduated college, started my first job, passed the CPA exam, moved to a new city, got married and bought a house!! Now, I would love to leave this monumental decade behind with one last impression - giving back.|
I've been a Volunteer Wish Granter with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central and Western North Carolina since July 2013. I have met so many amazing kids and families that have changed my life forever. Now, I have decided to participate in the Wish it Forward campaign to raise funds and awareness to grant the wishes of local children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich their lives with hope, strength and joy. With your help, I can surpass my goal and give the gift of a wish to a family at a time they need it most.
A wish quite simply does what no medicine can – it helps bring precious moments of joy to children, their families and entire communities. In 2017, my chapter alone plans to grant 308 wishes to eligible children at an average cost of $6,000 per wish. Please help me raise the funds necessary to make this possible. Making a donation is easy, secure and tax deductible! Just click the Give Now button and your contribution will be credited to help me Wish It Forward. Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated – no amount is too small.
On my next birthday - the big 30! - on 1/11/18 I will announce how far we have come. Raising $6,000 or more is enough to grant one kid's wish, like meeting a celebrity or going to California.
Above all, thank you for your support! Every dollar you donate will help spread the joy of a wish to kids like Julia, who wished to meet the band One Direction!
