Angelwish, Inc.
July 19, 2012

I worked for a semester as an intern at Angelwish. The organization was in a transition phase while I was there, expanding their aim and activities to try and reach a larger population as well as figuring out how to function in a more environmentally benign manner. During my time at Angelwish I was able to see firsthand how much work, thought, and effort the staff put into running the organization every day. Shimmy, the founder, works tirelessly to come up with new ways in which he can improve Angelwish's services, as well as trying to measure the real impact Angelwish is having on their target population. One of my jobs as an intern was to collect stories from social workers, hospitals, and families who had worked with Angelwish. It was only after hearing their stories that I realized how much Angelwish really has touched many peoples lives. The organization exemplifies the way in which seemingly small thoughts and actions--donating a toy, giving a gift--can make a real impact on a child or parent's life. It really is not about the gift, but about the way in which giving and receiving a gift can help build and repair relationships between a parent and child.
