Make-A-Wish Calls on Families Across the Country to Continue Holiday Tradition through Fundraising Activation
This holiday season, Make-A-Wish is calling on families across the country to once again come together through Families For Wishes, a fundraising campaign aimed at delivering hope and joy to children fighting critical illnesses.
Communities of families, friends, and more can create their own unique Families For Wishes fundraising page here and raise funds to help grant life-changing wishes. Families For Wishes provides a new approach to fundraising in support of the Make-A-Wish mission by inviting individuals near and far to leverage technology to come together and give back.
“A child’s wish begins with hope, and hope begins with you,” said Sheri Lambert, CEO of Make- A-Wish Greater Virginia. “By creating a Families For Wishes page and donating to Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia this holiday season, you and your family can join us in bringing joy back into the lives of local children.”
Signing up is as easy as one-two-three:
- Visit Make-A-Wish here.
- Join the Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia team to raise funds to support local families.
- Create a family fundraising page, add a picture, and begin fundraising!
The Families For Wishes activation will make it possible for more wish kids like 8-year-old Cooper from Fredericksburg to experience the power of a wish. Cooper’s wish to go on vacation in Florida rejuvenated his whole family in the middle of his battle with leukemia.
“I won’t forget seeing Cooper play and get to be a normal kid with no worries, no hospital or anything hooked up to him. It was truly unforgettable,” said his mom Jennifer.
