Dear Mr. Dorshaw:

On behalf of all the courageous children we serve, we would like to sincerely thank you for your donation of $20,151.35 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of North Texas. Since the inception of the North Texas Chapter in 1982, we have granted over 10,000 wishes and are continually growing each year. Our wish is to someday reach every eligible child in our 161-county area in Texas.

We are very proud of the fact that no medically eligible child has ever been denied a wish request and this is a direct result of your generosity. With the ever-growing number of wish children across North Texas, your donation allows this tradition to continue.

A wish experience can give back what a life-threatening medical condition sometimes takes away-hope, strength and joy. Children are energized by their wish and the moments of magic provided by imagining, describing, planning and anticipating that one true wish are innumerable. The chance to forget about their condition for even a brief moment gives these children the innocence that has been lost in the wake of difficult circumstances. It gives them something to HOPE for. It gives them the STRENGTH needed to get through one more treatment. It gives them JOY that every child deserves. Families and doctors often tell us that a wish can encourage a child to see a future and make recovery a reality.

As one wish child Sam’s parents shared:

“As parents, we are overwhelmed to see the incredible people who so freely dedicate their time and passion to this cause.  Of course, anticipating Sam’s wish was tremendously therapeutic for all of us.  But it’s bigger than that. Being able to take a trip together meant that Sam can be just like any other six-year-old boy. And after what he’s been through, he’s earned the right to be normal for a little while”

Because of your continued generosity, North Texas children will experience the power of a wish®


Best “Wishes,”
