Make A Wish

Retired --- looking for something rewarding to do with your spare time?

Then, how about becoming a WISH GRANTOR for the Make a Wish Foundation? It's a wonderful way to volunteer your time because you don't have to commit to one day a week. They offer free training and pair you with an experienced WISH GRANTOR for your first few visits.

I completed the training a few months ago and went out on my first "WISH" last weekend. It was fun to meet the young man, talk to him about his interests and what would be his fantasy "WISH". He wanted everything from meeting President Obama to playing basketball with Kobe Bryant.

He finally settled on going to the SUPERBOWL......so now it's up to the WISH granting team to pull some strings and make it happen!!
