I have been a volunteer at the TWF for 3 years. I’ve always felt that certain things in life are “sacred”, i.e. like a job, a friendship, one’s health or one’s financial prosperity. To me the word “sacred” implies a source of abundance. The staff and volunteers of the TWF, whether for a simple need or a wish to live life in the fullest, strive daily to be that source of abundance for a desiring senior. At the end of the day, it’s a good feeling. OK, so maybe we are one of those thousand points of light that President George H.W. Bush spoke of 20 + years ago! In any event, the TWF is a great organization.

Twilight Wish Foundation is comprised of a team of angels. It's a wonderful organization to be a part of and I feel honored to be associated with such caring people who unselfishly help others. I have the highest respect for this organization and all the great things they do. With so many seniors in need of simple things (for example - dentures and walkers) to seniors desiring one last wish (like going to their former job) to living their life to the fullest (perhaps going up in a biplane). Senior citizens gave of themselves and helped to pave the way for all of us, and it's up to us to give back to them. Twilight Wish averages one wish every other day - - what an amazing contribution to this world! Twilight Wish Foundation makes this world a nicer place to age, one wish at a time.

As the volunteer director of the NJ Chapter of Twilight Wish, I have to say that there is nothing more rewarding than helping to make wishes come true for our seniors. There is no greater feeling than seeing the smile on the face of the senior as their wish has been fulfilled.

Some wishes like trips to concerts, ball games and to see family/friends take some time to coordinate while others are simple to arrange. No matter how much time and coordination the wishes take, the end result is the same. The senior's wish comes true. Ultimately,
I am not sure who feels better when the wish is complete- the senior or me. I cannot tell you what a wonderful organization this is and how proud I am to be a part of it!

The unwavering strength of the founder, CEO, and the volunteer staff to raise funds for underprivileged seniors and grant the wishes of so many, who often ask so little, is awesome to behold. While some are fun to grant, it is often the small things, like teeth, hearing aids, shoes, beds, etc... that keep you humble. Every dollar counts so, please, if you have one share it with this organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Providing aid in the local area and national chapters.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Croak from the pressure!!!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The faces of the people you help. The gratitude of the families as we..

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Warmhearted & giving and from such diverse backgrounds. Everyone brings something different to the table.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Grant so many more wishes and get in the public eye more so that more funds would be raised.

Ways to make it better...

We had more funds with which to work.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Fundraising

One thing I'd also say is that...

It takes special kinds of people to volunteer and this is a very special group!
