Latest Status Update

  • To grant a wish is such an incredible experience. To work with another chapter to create a life-changing wish that will forever inspire others’ wishes, and be recognized by Make-A-Wish America as a recipient of the "Infinite Wish Award" for our collaborative efforts, is the ultimate reward. Our staff is elated after being honored with this award at our annual National conference just last night! We wouldn't have received this without the heartfelt wish of our sweet Wish Kid John, who deserves all the credit for his wish to be a drummer in a Revolutionary War Reenactment and the help of our friends at Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Go Team! John's Wish story: https://bit.ly/2yNy2iA
