Great Kindness in Small Package

Dana with Dominic and kids
As much as a written story tries to capture the joy of a wish-come-true, it just can’t compare to seeing a wish come true right before your very eyes. In my decade working at Make-A-Wish, I have had the privilege of witnessing many wishes come to life firsthand. But four-year-old Dominic’s wish will stay with me for a long time. You see, Dominic wished for a shopping spree but not entirely for himself.

Wish Wednesday: March is National Social Work Month

March is National Social Work Month and we’ve asked a couple of our social workers to share their experiences with Make-A-Wish for this week’s blog.
