Wish kid Samantha paid it forward in a big way with her graduation project.
Back in 2009, an 11-year-old Samantha was granted her very special wish to visit the American Girl Doll store in New York City.
Now, eight years later, Samantha made the generous decision to give back to Make-A-Wish® with her graduation project called “Samantha’s Make-A-Wish® Give Back.” The Avonworth High School student got to work created a school-wide raffle for students, parents, staff and faculty to participate in. Tickets were sold for a donation of $10 will all proceeds benefiting Make-A-Wish. Together, Samantha and her community raised $3,190 to help help more wishes come true. Nice work, Samantha!
