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!
