    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:

    https://secure2.wish.org/site/TR/In...WishAlabama?px=4271277&pg=personal&fr_id=3159

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

    That's awesome. The best part of the experience for me has been getting to know wish kids and their families. Thank you for your help.

    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.
