'TIS THE SEASON TO WISH

giving back
The most wonderful time of the year is fast approaching, but have you ever stopped to think about what makes it so full of wonder? Maybe it’s the twinkling lights, or the aroma of homemade goodies, or even the sounds of Michael Buble’s holiday hits.

We all have different things that make this time of year so special, but for our wish kids battling a life-threatening condition; the joy can be overcome by worry or fear. What if we said you could help replace that fear with hope through Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada? Granting the wish of every eligible child is always on our list, and there are many ways to check it twice. 

Volunteering  

Unlike the office potluck, volunteering can actually benefit your health. Yep, you can reduce your stress, increase your confidence and stay mentally and physically active just by sharing a little bit of your time. As luck would have it, we have an amazing volunteering opportunity coming up during the Las Vegas Bowl (link to sign up page) on December 16. We are looking for fun and enthusiastic community members to help sell 50/50 raffle tickets that will benefit Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada. If this sounds like you, we’d love to have you at this amazing event! 

Monthly Giving 

Although a third of charitable giving is done in December, you don’t have to wait for the holidays to give back. You can honor our wish kids all year long with an automatic monthly donation. It’s a great (and easy) way to send hope and strength to a deserving child. 

Amazon Wish List 

St. Nick has his list and we have ours. Our Amazon Wish List is full of things we need to help make dreams come true.  Moving our mission forward is as easy as clicking “add to cart”.   

 

These are just a few of the ways you to give back this season, but you can find more here. Happy holidays from all of us at Make-A-Wish!
