    As may of you know, I did the 2018 Make-A-Wish Trailblaze challenge to raise money to grant wishes for kids suffering from critical illnesses. If not, here's the thread on it:

    https://www.the-mainboard.com/index...make-a-wish-2018-trailblaze-challenge.167206/

    With your help, I raised a little under $4,000.00, which is about half the price of the average wish. Now, I am doing it again and hope to raise more.

    If anybody would like to make a donation, you can go to my personal donation page:

    I can provide you with it if you pm me.

    Please don't try to steal my identity or call me at work. :ohdear:

    Make A Wish’s Office is in our building. A nice perk of my job is our company grants around 5-6 wishes each year and we all get to participate in the presentation. This last year, we bought one of the families a fifth wheel and Disney vacation. I got to pull up with the fifth wheel and see the girls faces when they turned around. Awesome experience and awesome organization.
    Good luck Tegg.

    Donated. Was able to be involved in a make a wish for a family member many years ago and got to see just how amazing the organization is and the wishes are for those lucky enough to get them. Good luck on the fundraising Tegg.

    What if we just pool our money and grant a wish ourselves?

    Edit: I think make a wish is great, just thought it would be a neat thing to do.

    It would be a lot more expensive. A lot of wishes are made possible largely as a result of in-kind donations. For example, they're in the process of granting a wish for a wheelchair bound child in North Alabama who wanted a garage so that his grandparents wouldn't get wet helping him out of their van. The actual cost (including the ramp, etc.) was going to end up being ~$45k. They've gotten volunteers to do it largely for free.

    Bump.

    Kids like Khari are why I am participating in the 2018 Make-A-Wish Alabama Trailblaze Challenge this weekend.

    When Khari was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2013, she was told she could wish for anything in the world. Khari has always been the biggest fan of Mariah Carey, and so she immediately knew that her one true wish was to meet the "We Belong Together" singer.

    In late November 2014, it was beginning to look as though scheduling conflicts would delay Khari's wish until the summer of 2015.

    Then, the phone rang. A few days before Thanksgiving, Make-A-Wish Alabama received some incredible news; Mariah Carey wanted Khari to join her for Thanksgiving in California.

    "It was pretty awesome," Khari's mother, Kristie, said. "Khari was really star struck and in shock. She leaned over and said 'I'm just so nervous – I’m trying to remain calm’.”

    Not only did Mariah have Thanksgiving dinner with Khari, but she also took Khari on a private tour of her home. Additionally, Mariah took "selfies" with Khari and gave her an autographed gumball machine with three of her signature perfumes inside.

    “Mariah was very welcoming,” Kristie said. “We were comfortable the entire time. It was very heartfelt and overwhelming with joy.”
