Finding Proof in the Importance of a Wish

Adam B_480x
When I accepted the position at Make-A-Wish Maine, I knew I found the right place for me. Since college, I’ve worked in development and was thrilled to join an organization like Make-A-Wish because it was getting to the heart of why I wanted to work in the nonprofit world: to make a difference I could feel.

An Icy Cold Wish

It is nearly impossible to not think about Make-A-Wish, even outside of the office. When meeting someone for the first time, they almost always know someone who has had a wish or know some great wish story that particularly struck them.

A Pirate Ship Wish

Owens pirate ship treehouse
Every wish that Make-A-Wish® Maine grants to a child with a life-threatening illness takes a lot of planning, dedicated volunteers, and a little bit of magic. But some wishes also involve a crane and pirates! On Saturday, Nov. 23, a special wish was granted to a young boy from Auburn, Maine. Owen Winslow, 7, has been battling a malignant tumor, known as a Glioma, and he asked Make-A-Wish Maine for a Pirate Ship Tree House. Make-A-Wish teamed up with several local vendors, and on Saturday, Owen became Captain of his very own ship!

I started working here at Make-A-Wish® Maine in October of last year. Not too long after starting, I was asked by our fabulous Volunteer Director Eileen if I would like to volunteer as a wish granter for a new wish child.

Texas Training

This week I spent some time away from the office and met some folks from other chapters of Make-A-Wish at a conference about our database. I hadn’t ever been to Dallas, Texas before and it was pretty exciting!

Opening the Wish Closet

One of Meredith's favorite parts of her job is "shopping" for kids from the wish closet.
One of the best parts of my job is the time I spend in the Wish Closet. Think of it: this is a closet full of toys and books that I get to put together in a travel bag for our Wish Kids and their siblings. It’s like Christmas shopping! Only better, because I don’t get a bill after selecting the perfect items.
