Grant A Wish, Inc is a not for profit, tax exempt 501 (c) (3) organization that grants wishes to needy, disabled and abused children. Grant A Wish, Inc was founded by Anne Blair in Chicago in 1981, to help make a difference in the lives of children by granting basic wishes at that time. Grant A Wish started as a general wish organization. We have structured 5 programs to address different needs. One of our programs is our Grant A Wish Annual Holiday Gift Program that has made a difference over the last few years since it had been structured as of 2006. We have made improvements to all of our programs over the last few years to make things better for our sponsors, supporters and the general public. We welcome corporate volunteers and individuals who would like to work with our organization to reach out to more companies that would like to help children at Christmas.
We have made things better for the agencies and for their children we help by providing gifts to them at Christmas. Every year agencies apply for our Annual Holiday Gift Program so the children that they have at their community base organization can receive some Christmas joy. We can all try to do our part for those who may be less fortunate. Especially in today's economic climate were some people are having financial hardships.
Christmas is for the children. For a child to wake up on Christmas morning and receive their Christmas wish or gift is a wonderful things to partake in. We grant hundreds of wishes at Christmas and we hope to do more. In the past, we have provided up to 5,000 Christmas gifts/wishes at one time every December for a number of years, in the 80's & 90's. Since those days the economy has made it more difficult for people to extend their kindness for the enrichment of someone else and people have specific charities that they may support for the Christmas Holiday. Christmas is for those who believe in sharing some holiday joy and helping a child's Christmas wishes come true. The spirit of giving should teach one to care about someone else who may be less fortunate. It should teach us to share, to care, and to give from the heart. Our world can be a better place, by being a more compassionate human being and not forgetting about those who are suffering or may be in a different living environment that may make it hard for them to live like others. Our support of organizations and groups who sacrifice their lives for others and to help with simple acts of kindness can make a big difference. Do your part the best you can and help make this a Merry Christmas for a child. Contact some of your friends or family member to help us this Christmas. Call some friends or associates at their company for them to take a list and help out.
We have developed our programs, to address and continue to improve to provide for more children. We have created some new projects that we would like to introduce for future Christmas Holiday's. It would be fun for all and we will be able to help thousands of children. It is the creation of a three tier Christmas program under the Annual Holiday Gift Program.
The future is bright as well as our continued efforts to change a childs life. Merry Christmas to all who have and will strive to do their part to put a smile on a childs face. Corporations are welcome to be a regular sponsor of our Annual Holiday Gift Program every year to help make a difference by doing your part. If you don't support us, try and support another organization or group that may be providing Christmas gifts to needy children.Thank you in advance for your support. If you can't purchase a gift for a child this Christmas if you believe in prayer send up a positive thought for our world. We all can do something Merry Christmas.
Have a blessed safe Happy 2013 New Year and may God always shine his bright light on you all and help bless you everyday you live.
