The idea of granting a sick child their greatest wish is a very simple one and the Make-A-Wish foundation has been granting such wishes to kids since 1980. That’s 30 years. You have to read the story of the first wish – it will not only lift your spirits, but remind you how lucky you are. For those of us blessed with children in our lives who are happy and healthy, well, there are no words for how blessed we truly are. To be able to donate even a little to grant a little happiness to a child who isn’t healthy is a blessing in and of itself.
