I couldn't be more proud or grateful for the opportunity to serve on the Make a Wish Arizona Board. It is the most amazing group of people that have been assembled to make a difference in the lives of children with life threatening medical illness. The Staff of Make a Wish Arizona are the best in the business. From CEO Elizabeth Reich to every position both paid and volunteer, this is an organization firmly planted in the cause. Our whole family embraced the mission and got involved, including our daughters who started Kids for Wish kids club at their High School. It is humbling to know that we are apart of granting the one true wish of a child truly in need of a wish. To hear the stories from the families and the impact it has had on their lives is a gift that can never be repaid!
What a wonderful year it has been to be on the Make A Wish Board of AZ. Incrediable team in the truest sense. Such great enegy dominated by our Wish for our WISH Kids.
I have only been a MAW Board Member for about 6 months, but prior to that I was involved in helping the organization navigate employment issues as their pro bono lawyer. As a board member, i get to see first hand the impact of a wish on a child and his or her family. It is the most incredibly rewarding experience to see the wish's positive effects on their lives. For a time, they can focus on the wish instead of their illness. I am so amazed by all the wonderful children we help and how often their biggest hope is to pay it forward by raising money to grant more wishes. Truly moving. I am blessed to be part of the organization.
