ONE SIMPLE WISH
April 14, 2011

One Simple Wish is that rare thing - a great idea, executed well. I heard of the charity through a friend, and immediately was struck by how smart and straightforward it was. You give directly to the people you want to help. There is no fuzziness about where your money goes. You choose how much to give and who to give it to and what it will be spent on. I've granted wishes for all kinds of recipients - children close in age to my own kids, young mothers in need, teens who are striving to get ahead. The website is well thought out and the whole process feels warm and personal. I give to a number of small charities on an ongoing basis, and I can't always give as much as I would like or help all those I would like to help. But when I give to One Simple Wish I always feel that what I give is well used.

The Great!

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

My experience is just as a donor. But I have involved my own kids in the experience too - we granted wishes for Christmas, and we chose them together, because I want my kids to learn to think of others and to know that even a small amount of help can mean a lot.

Ways to make it better...

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

One of the only drawbacks of this organization - that some worthy wishes were too expensive for me, and possibly many other donors, to fund in total - has now been changed. It is now possible to donate small amounts to a big wish if you can't afford to fund the whole thing. Good thinking.
