A legacy of love

Leslie Larson

“ What my gift will do for local wish kids is meaningful and lives with those involved forever. ”

- Leslie Larson, Legacy of Wishes donor

“My husband, Eric, dreamed of riding in a float plane: to soak up the scenery with a bird’s eye view of home. I kept putting it off, thinking I’d gift him this trip for his 60th birthday.

I never even dreamed that Eric wouldn’t see his 60th birthday. I wish I hadn’t waited.

When people you love have a dream, you want to fulfill it sooner than later. It’s the same for our wish kids; there’s no time like the present.

That’s why I’ve included Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington in my estate plan. Leaving this legacy means wishing it forward for a wish family; giving them an experience like I never gave Eric.

What my gift will do for local wish kids is meaningful and lives with those involved forever. It’s a mission not accomplished in any other way.

It’s easy to put off your estate plan, but it’s also comforting to have my affairs in order. Take time now to ensure organizations you care about reap the benefits. Think about the legacy you want to leave.”

You, too, can leave a lasting impact. Including Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington in your estate plan is easy.
