James’ Toy Collection
James wished to add to his treasured collection of toy trucks.
James loved his collection of toy trucks. He’d tell anyone who stopped by his room the make and model of each vehicle he owned. We granted his wish for a few new toys … then we added a few extra surprises. We wish you could have seen the look on James’ face when we saw real-life antique trucks and cars sitting outside of the Assisted Living Facility where he now resides. James got a second surprise when the fire trucks showed up. James used to be a fireman so seeing the trucks brought back great memories. The firemen and James talked shop about his memories as a fireman for a while. James was able to laugh and enjoy the scenery of the beautiful antique cars and feel like he was back to his old fireman days with the trucks and crew around him.
Carol’s Warm Wish
Carol wishes to be warm and cozy during the holidays.
We all want to be warm and cozy – especially during the holidays. Carol loves watching her favorite movies, but she’s feeling a bit chilled. She saw a fireplace TV stand, and thought it was such a neat idea to keep warm while she watches her shows. It would make her room at the assisted living facility feel more like home. We would love to find a “fireplace” for Carol’s room … will you help?
Chris’ Christmas Surprise
Chris wishes to surprise his daughter with a new laptop.
Chris is a super selfless guy. He isn’t thinking of himself at Christmas – but of his beloved daughter. Chris’ wish is to surprise his daughter with a new laptop. She’s getting older, and she’s very keen to keep up with technology. Right now, she has to walk to the library to do her homework and research school reports. You can help us give Chris a laptop, so he can give his daughter the opportunity she needs to succeed.
Timothy wishes to travel to see his family for the holidays.
This time of year, it’s especially important to be with the ones you love. Timothy’s family lives out of town, and his Christmas wish is to spend the holiday with them. He needs our help to travel to his hometown, and to spread holiday cheer with meaningful gifts. Help us send Timothy shopping for presents – then home to celebrate with loved ones. After all, this might be his last chance to spend Christmas with family. Let’s make it a great one.
