Hello World! It’s pretty early as I write this and have decided that getting up early works for me. I really get a jump on the day! This morning in particular I am super excited to start writing because I am bursting at the seems to tell you about the charitable foundation that Hello World Paper Co. & Stamps is giving to this month! It’s the Make-A-Wish Foundation! The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants a wish every 38 minutes in the US and it’s territories. That is pretty heart-warming!
I decided to give to the Make-A-Wish Foundation this month because my mom has volunteered there for years as a Wish Granter and the stories I hear from her are so uplifting and also heart-wrenching at the same time. These children are very sick and their sickness, not only affects them, but their whole family. My mom gets assigned a child in our area and meets with them to help bring their wish to life. How amazing is that?! The process of granting wishes is pretty straightforward, but never the same. She has granted wishes for family trips to Disney, a room makeover, a therapeutic pool, a sensory room, and even a trip to The Royal Rumble for one wrestling fan. My mom takes great care to make sure each child’s wish is as perfect as it can be - I absolutely love hearing the inspiring stories and my mom and the Make-A-Wish Foundation are truly making dreams come true for these children and their families.
So this month 10% of all shop profits are going to The Make-A-Wish Foundation so that they can continue to make dreams come true!
Have a fabulous day!
