A Wish, A Dream, & Free Ice Cream

Who wouldn't scream for free ice cream?!

Be sure to head on over to your nearest Cold Stone Creamery on Thursday September 28th from 5-8 PM. It's the 5th Annual World's Largest Ice Cream Social, and guests will be treated to a free serving of Cole's Creation (created by a Wish child.) In exchange for the free ice cream, donations are encouraged to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

We'll be at our local Cold Stone with Noah in his Make-A-Wish shirt greeting customers. You can read about Noah's Wish here. And this year Noah will actually be able to eat some ice cream!

We have been asked a few times - just what determines which children are deserving of having a wish granted from Make-A-Wish? Noah is well now, and not terminally ill. But his disease is considered life threatening. You can see the full story here.

The mission of the Make-A-Wish Foundation® is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Children must be referred to the Foundation and determined to be medically eligible for a wish by their physician. The child's treating physician makes the final determination of whether a child's medical condition qualifies him or her for a wish.

We can testify to the hope, strength, & joy of being blessed by the generosity and love of Make-A-Wish. Their focus is not only to bring this amazing hope to a deserving child, but also to the parents and siblings. Noah's wish is something we will always remember as such a magical, special time for our family.

Please spread the word & join us in this fabulous ice cream for wishes event!

  1. Hooray for Noah - and his being able to eat ice cream this year! David will be out of town but Xav and I will try our best to drop in. Make a Wish is such a wonderful organization - and I have to eat all the ice cream I can before V-day on Monday! :)

  2. Oh man! We don't have a Cold Stone Creamery here!! I'll be sure to tell my parents though, they have one by them.

    i'm so glad he got his wish, and you all got to enjoy that special time together! I went back and read about it.

    When I saw this title, I was hoping that you had won that free ice cream party from Turtle Mountain (So Delicious). But this is a way better story, I think!
    You're always in my prayers, girl!

  12. I love the Make A Wish program. I have a cousin with a rare, life threatening disease. Basically, his esophagus was perforated. He had trachiotomy so he could breath and a stomach pump to feed him.

    Although his disease isn't terminal, he got a wish to go to Disney World with his parents. It meant the world to them!
