Seven years and more than 50 wishes later, wish granting never gets old for volunteer Sheri Harvey.
“Each wish child is special and each wish and wish family are so unique and different that it’s impossible to get burnt out on wishes,” she said. “I really consider it an honor and privilege to be able to do something positive for them when often times their lives have been consumed by negatives.”
Being a wish-granting volunteer has been a life-changer for Sheri. Her life has been enriched by this experience that puts things into perspective. It’s also become a family affair as she inspired both her sister-in-law, Jill, and her daughter, Lindsey, to become volunteers.
Sheri and Jill have worked on 15 wishes together, while she and Lindsey collaborated on their first wish last fall for 14-year-old Micah who wanted a computer system. “Lindsey and I already have a great relationship, but this gives us another opportunity to spend time together doing something that is so important to both of us," said Sheri. "I have enjoyed giving her advice about her wish families and appreciate all the new and fresh ideas she gives me for mine.”
