A mother's gratitude
We recently received a touching letter from a wish parent that we are pleased to share with our friends and supporters. The letter came to us from Margaret, the mother of 16-year-old Charlotte who wished to go to Hawaii and swim with the dolphins. She told us that her favorite moment was snorkeling with Charlotte: "It felt like a world apart from any other. As the saline waters buoyed our bodies, gently rocking us with the tide, time was lost; it brought to me a new relationship with the ocean, as a source of energy and renewal." Read Margaret's complete letter and through it, experience the true impact of a wish.
Tune in to help grant wishes
The 13th annual Make-A-Wish Central Oregon Radiothon is just around the corner. With your help, we hope to raise more than $30,000. On February 27th and 28th, Horizon Broadcasting Group stations 105.7 KQAK-FM, THE PEAK 104.1 and LITE 95.7 will broadcast live from Subaru of Bend and share inspirational stories of hope. Visit our website for information on sponsoring the radiothon or donating an item to the online auction.
Season of Wishes® recap
The 6th annual Season of Wishes was a huge success thanks to the generous support of local businesses. Check out this video for a recap of all the holiday magic! A special thanks to our presenting sponsors, KATU, Buffalo Wild Wings and U.S. Bank for their ongoing support.

January is "National Thank You Month," and Make-A-Wish Oregon would like to express our most sincere thanks to our volunteers, board members, wish kids and families, donors and friends for supporting our mission each and every day.
