Fifteen-year-old Sam of Anchorage can’t get enough of the cold weather. Sam is battling a life-threatening heart condition and has undergone two open-heart surgeries. To keep his mind on something else, he dreams of traveling to Antarctica. All thirteen Alaska Taco Bell locations are partnering with Make-A-Wish Alaska, the non-profit organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions, to grant Sam’s wish to go on an Antarctic expedition.
Sept. 4th - Oct. 1st: Stop by any Taco Bell restaurant in Alaska to donate $1 or more to help grant Sam’s wish and the wishes of other Alaskan Make-A-Wish kids.
Last year, Taco Bell customers donated more than $30,000 to help grant wishes to Alaska kids, and 100 % of the gross donations go directly to funding wishes.

About Make-A-Wish® Alaska
Since 1986, Make-A-Wish Alaska has granted Alaskan wishes to more than 500 children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. This year, the local chapter will grant about 30 wishes, and an additional 30 wishes to kids from across the US who wish to visit Alaska as part of their wish. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can influence the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family.
