ONE SIMPLE WISH
September 12, 2013

One Simple Wish allows anyone to make a difference in the life of a foster child, by showing children who have suffered from abuse and neglect that there are people out there who care about them, and who want to help provide for them, even if they cannot become foster parents. At any time by simply browsing onesimplewish.org, one can find an affordable "wish" to grant, and by reading about the recipient, feel connected to that child. This is truly a unique nonprofit, in that donors can choose exactly what their donation is going towards. And from my personal experience with the organization, the staff at One Simple Wish are a truly dedicated team of people who are passionate advocates for foster kids -- making every penny received work hard to help these kids. Amazing organization!!!

ONE SIMPLE WISH
October 23, 2012

I first learned of this organization by discovering it online and becoming a volunteer a few years ago. I was initially truly impressed by the uniqueness of it's purpose -- allowing anyone to make a difference in the life of a child in need, and being able to view and then grant their wishes with a click or two on a website. I really loved the idea that someone choosing to make a donation could do more than just write a check; they could see to whom their donation was going, and feel more of a personal connection. Particularly as many of us care about the plight of foster children, but don't know how to help. Now, as time has gone by, I see how impactful these small wishes really are, by the thank you notes received from the caseworkers and the children themselves, and in seeing how these gifts can really give a child hope that there are people out there who care. Beyond that, I see the tremendous passion that the founder and the dedicated staff at One Simple Wish have for this cause; and their resolve to make the lives of foster children better in every way they can has enabled so much awareness and so many positive initiatives for these kids. I am truly honored to serve as part of this board; my only wish is that I had more time and more to give.
