What a wonderful Disney day! New Hope for Kids received a $25,000 Making Dreams Come True Grant for our work with grieving children. Executive Director, Dave Joswick and Board Chair, Elizabeth Peele were honored to attend the ceremony and receive the check. Thank you Disney!
As the mom of a “wish kid,” I know that a wish is much more than a magical moment, or a special family vacation for a child who is sick. When my daughter’s wish was granted, we were filled with an indescribable feeling of hope, just like Genesis’ family. A wish means that something has gone right in the world where much has gone wrong. A wish is a once in a lifetime experience to look forward to, and then to treasure afterwards. A wish (from New Hope’s Wishes for Kids program) brings a team of caring people into your life whose sole purpose is to bring happiness to your child. I wish Genesis and the Lopez family joy and happiness on their Disney Cruise, a family vacation that will last a lifetime. –Pam
