The Reward of Wish Granting

Efrain 480x250
Being a Wish Granter for Make-A-Wish continues to be incredibly rewarding. Not only does it give me the opportunity to meet and get to know other volunteers that share the same passion as I do to give back to the community, but it also give me the opportunity to represent an organization that is admired so much for the work it does for those it serves.

Each experience is so unique since each wish family and desired wish is so unique. Meeting the wish families for the first time allows me to learn about each family member and the struggles that the family has gone through. This information is important as it allows me to become even more passionate about the wish we will grant. The wish children always love to talk about themselves and quickly we realize what they are most excited about. In most cases, their true wish is something they never imagined as a possibility. Working with the Make-A-Wish office to use our creativity expands infinite possibilities for wishes to come true! My favorite part of the process are the wish reveal events we do to announce to the wish child that their wish is coming true! The excitement and joy in the child’s face is priceless and makes every minute spent on the wish worth it! I love connecting with the family after their wish is complete to share photos and hear about the experiences they encountered; all of them consistently say that the memories are unforgettable! Make-A-Wish truly helps alleviate the pain that the children and their families go through by providing some form of hope and comfort during difficult time.
