Adam, 7, has leukemia: “I wish to go to Hawaii.”

Make-A-Wish® has long stood as a beacon of hope for children with life-threatening medical conditions and their families. 

 

Make-A-Wish makes their heartfelt wishes come true: from Hawaiian vacations to Alaskan adventures, to experiencing what it’s like to be a ballerina or a firefighter, to meeting their most beloved heroes. Though the organization now has reached the astounding accomplishment of granting a child’s wish in the U.S. every 38 minutes, with 28,000 children diagnosed with a life-threatening illness each year, there are always more wishes to be granted.

 

Make-A-Wish teamed up with Subaru of America, Inc. for the “Share the Love” event: For every Subaru sold, Subaru will donate $250 to one of the five selected charities. Make-A-Wish was thrilled the event could help it get closer to reaching the goal of granting the wish of every eligible child.

 

 

 

A Perfect Alliance

 

“After hosting more than 45 events with local dealerships in more than 20 states in 2011, many Make-A-Wish chapters now have great relationships with local Subaru dealerships across the country,” said David Williams, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America.

 

“We’re very excited to build upon last year’s success,” Williams continued. “The ‘Share the Love’ event is a great fit for us. Just as Subaru ‘shares the love’ during the holiday season, Make-A-Wish shares hope, strength, and joy with wish kids, wish families, volunteers, and local communities, year-round.”
