Platform: Celebrating the Dreams of Childhood: The Make A Wish Foundation

“Childhood should be about playing, dreaming and looking ahead to the future. For thousands of children with life threatening illnesses, tomorrow is not a guarantee and the future is uncertain. The Make a Wish Foundation grants wishes for children whose future is not guaranteed. I will partner with them to raise funds and awareness to help this organization carry out its mission. Several children in my school have been a part of Make A Wish.”
