Why We Give
Generosity is entering into someone else’s story. It’s connecting our life story with theirs. Giving generously to someone in need or taking time to listen to someone’s concern, for that moment enables us to enter into their world and connects us together. With each wish fulfilled, we are honored to be a part of the story of our patient’s life and everyone that gives so much to make them happen.
While donations fund each wish, oftentimes we need things other than money. Maybe you can give of your time, or you can lend us something to help make a wish come true.
We identify wishes and what the patient values through conversations and turn those into an experience. The coordination and financial aspect are completely taken care of.
None of these wishes would be possible without the support of the community. We’re raising funds to secure different elements of each wish and experience, but we’ve been humbled the most by the community’s willingness to provide resources such as a trolley, bringing their beagle dog to a patient, donating time and gas money for an old car ride and an RV trip. We’ve had numerous people reach out with a willingness to share their talents and resources and that’s what we need. We also need the ability to have donations in the fund so that we can purchase items and pay for experiences quickly, as some of these patients may have a limited timeline for us to grant their wish fully before their condition prevents it.
