Thank You From Make-A-Wish® Greater Los Angeles

January 24, 2018

Dear Car Donation Foundation,

Thank you for helping the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles bring hope, strength, and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions. On behalf of our wish kids and their families, we greatly appreciate your charitable donation of $15,000 received on 12/27/2108.

With your generosity, we can continue providing wishes for hundreds of children throughout Los Angeles County. The knowledge that wishes have a definite and positive impact on the healing process inspires us to help every eligible child experience that transformative power of a wish.

We are always inspired by wish kids who recognize the importance of giving back- like 18-year-old Nicolas, who wished to help others during their tough times. After battling months of radiation and chemotherapy at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles due to a brain tumor, Nicolas felt compelled to pay his wish forward to children like himself. Donning a superhero cape, Nicolas’ wish was fulfilled as he visited CHLA and gave toys with inspirational messages on them to children who were undergoing medical treatments. After seeing the smiles of all the kids, Nicolas aid, “I’m so grateful for getting the opportunity to do that. I’m more appreciative of the life I have. This situation taught me everything about what’s important in life.” Today, Nicolas is in remission, taking college courses and looking toward his bright future.

This past year, the Las Angeles chapter granted 336 wishes. However, there are over 500 children in Los Angeles currently waiting to have their wish granted. Now more than ever, we are committed to closing this gap and achieving our vision of granting the wish of every eligible child. That is why your donation means so much to us.

Thank you again for helping change the lives of children and their families in such a profound, meaningful and lasting way.

Warmest Wishes,

Mike Kallhoff
