Time to Make-A-Wish

I have to say that my week has started off in a wonderful way. I received a phone call today from the Make-A-Wish Foundation advising they need a volunteer to assist with a child's wish.

This is my first experience as a Wish Granting volunteer. The good news is we work in teams of 2 and I will be working with an experienced volunteer.

At this point I have not received many details and it may be another 2-3 weeks before the wish granting process is underway however I couldn't be more excited.

I have more time then money as many of us do these days and while money is important to help make things happen, without the donated time from volunteers, it is much more difficult to make these wonderful experiences happen for the children and their families.

So with the support of my wonderful family who understands and is passionate about this like I am, I have all the support I need to give the time necessary to ensure the child and their family have the greatest experience possible.

I will keep everyone updated with the progress so please stay tuned.
