Thank You From Make-A-Wish South Dakota
Dear Car Donation Foundation,
When a wish comes true, it creates strength, hope and transformation. That is why we are committed to our vision of making every eligible child’s wish to come true.
Thank you for the donation of $517.26 for our Wheels For Wishes program. Your support helps us create a magical wish experience, whether it be a travel wish to destinations such as Walt Disney World or Hawaii, items such as playsets or sensory rooms or meeting sports teams or celebrities, you are helping to bring much-needed joy to a sick child.
This past fiscal year, we granted 72 wishes to kids facing critical illnesses throughout South Dakota. Today, the average wish costs around $7,200, and that amount continues to rise. We have more than 75 kids statewide that we are currently working with and will receive wishes in the coming months.
Wish mom Evie had this to say about the experience for her daughter Vienna, 12, of Mitchell, who went to Australia for her wish: “The sparkle in her eyes, the excitement in her body language and the smile on her face made all of the stuff we had been through after she suffered three strokes seem like a distant memory.”
Thank you for helping us to transform lives, one wish at a time.
