One Simple Wish never ceases to amaze me. I have been involved in many different ways for about 9 months now, and the amount of lives they are able to touch and impact is beyond amazing. The organization is run by a small group with huge hearts. Everything One Simple Wish touches turns to gold. They are truly a magical organization that are changing the world one wish at a time.

I absolutely LOVE this organization! I have a soft spot in my heart for foster children around the world. They did not choose to come into this world to be left looking for a family to love and support them. Luckily, One Simple Wish has been created to help those children and young adults get the love, recognition and life they so deserve!

I also home more people contribute to this organization to help it grow and reach as many children as possible. These children are our future!

One Simple Wish is a wonderful organization that grants wishes for children in foster care so that they too can have some of the oppurtunities or items that other children do. One of the children I case manage in foster care received a Kindle electronic reader so that he could practice reading and he was so happy to receive it. Thank you One Simple Wish for making wishes come true for so many children in foster care.

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

having a wish granted for one of the children I can manage who is in foster care.

I think this organization is doing a great job. I will continue to tell my co-workers and other staff about this great organization so that they too can request/donate wishes to foster children.

OSW allows anyone with any means to help a child, other non-profits or a family in need. A friend calls it "e-bay for charity" without the bidding. You just scroll through the list of desires from pre-screened wish seekers and choose who and what gift/wish you want to grant. The wishes are anywhere from $5 - $500. The average being around $50. You check out online and the wish is granted. How easy is that! The best part is that you know where and to whom your gift is going. What a creative and successfully run non-profit organization!

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

knowing that I granted wishes to children that have very few resources.

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

Expand it Nationally!

One Simple Wish is an amazing way to donate your money to a cause and know that the impact is real. Unlike most organizations where the donation goes into a large pot of funds, I know who my gift is going to and what my money will be used for.

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

Seeing children and families benefit from my donation. I have read their stories and become personally engaged in the wishes that are being filled.

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

Want to see more follow up stories on the site on how the children are enjoying the wishes that were fulfilled.
