UNITY A JOURNEY OF HOPE
April 29, 2013

Why would you take this great non-profit off your list? THAT is just wrong. These people work day in and day out to serve dying people. No it doesn't get lots of publicity. SO WHAT? Why is that a requirement to do good work? Every day they are on the phone looking to grant someone's wish. EVERY single day. Looking for people who can donate 10 minutes of their time to fulfill a wish of a lifetime . Looking for a sympathetic hotel chain or an airline or publicity dept. You should seriously rethink your protocols if that is what they are. Look at their web page, look at their Facebook page and see wishes granted and dare to say they are not among the most selfless giving people you can find. They are a great organization and deserve ANY support you can give them, whether it is looking for something a recipient needs, or arranging a trip or a visit with one of their heroes.

UNITY A JOURNEY OF HOPE
October 29, 2012

These people are heroes. They grant wishes to dying adults to make a dream come true. They give of their time, their income, their respect, and their love. They NEVER say something can't be done, but who do we call, who do we know who cares, how can we help this person fulfill a dream? Its not easy asking companies to give a free room for the night, an airline free tickets, a star to do a meet and greet but again and again they get people to come thru because remind them of the truly important things in life: love - family - dignity - and how they would hope to be treated in similar circumstances. This past weekend they arranged for someone to meet Bruce Springsteen, they arranged a marriage and reception for a dying man and his girlfriend in I think 3 days. The list goes on and on. I wish I had some skill to offer them, but I don't, so I re-post their stuff everywhere I can because what they do is precious, a life-changing act of love. They make a difference in someone's life EVERY SINGLE DAY. We are blessed to have these people in this world.
