Thank You From Wishes & More®
April 4, 2019
Dear Car Donation Foundation,
On behalf of all of us here at Wishes & More®, thank you for your donation of $1,185.61. Your kind gift supports our mission of granting wishes and scholarships to kids with terminal and life-threatening conditions; and our memorial grant program for the parents of children who did not survive to have their wish come true. This month we are sharing Tyler’s story.
When do camo and balloons come together with a big smile? When they are the backdrop for a wish, of course! Tyler is a 15-year-old from Alexandria who is a total outdoors kid. Hunting and fishing are his favorite pastimes, and after enduring a few recent surgeries from his life-long struggle with aortic stenosis, he needed a pick-me-up that only a wish can provide. Based on his love of the outdoors, his top three choices included a small manageable fishing boat, a hunting trip, or a guided fishing trip.
He absolutely loves being on the lake, and we were happy to grant his #1 wish by gifting him a boat financial allowances so he could buy the boat of his choice. He quickly found the perfect one- an Alumacraft 145 CS from Power Lodge in Brainerd. When Tyler and his family picked the boat up, Power Lodge employees joined in making it a special celebration by putting balloons on it as a fun surprise. He is excitedly looking forward to the hard water melting away and getting out on the MN lakes to take as many fishing trips he possibly can!
Thank you again on behalf of Tyler and his family, and all of us here at Wishes & More.
