09 Jul Donation Helps Children in Need Celebrate Mother’s Day
Organization: Children’s Wish Foundation International
Lives Impacted: 200+
The Children’s Wish Foundation International, Inc. is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Atlanta, GA that fulfills wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses. Since 1985, hundreds of thousands of children have been touched by the efforts of Children’s Wish Foundation through the foundation’s various programs. Through the various programs, the children get to interact with others and meet new people outside of their everyday routine.
This year we held a Mother’s Day event to provide hospitalized children the ability to shop for their mom since they are unable to have the traditional Mother’s Day experience. Children were able to fill a gift bag with a variety of products for their mothers. These bags included products like Julep nail polish, and a wide variety of self-care products. The donations from these companies made a positive impact on the CWFI community as the beauty products were a part of a collection of cosmetics, jewelry, and clothing that reached over 200 patients and families at our partner hospitals. While many of these children were unable to celebrate Mother’s Day outside of the hospital, the support of all of our donors made it possible for them to create a magical Mother’s Day experience for the women they love.
Many of the families were overwhelmed and thankful for this opportunity, but our partner hospitals were just as appreciative, “A big THANK YOU to Children’s Wish Foundation International, Inc. for donating all of the Mother’s Day Shopping Spree items! The patients and their siblings had so much fun shopping for Mom and making her a card! Thanks again for all the nice items!!” Thank you to Good360 for helping us to continue spreading happiness to children and families affected by illness.
