Christmas Wish

Christmas Wish

Listen to the wishes we’ve granted this year.

Christmas Wish #10 – Adopted Kids

A family in Des Moines dropped everything and adopted their grandchildren who showed up on their doorstep with just a box of clothes and one stuffed animal. This year, we work together to show just what Christmas is all about.

Christmas Wish #9 – Single Mom

We grant a Christmas Wish for Kathy, a single mom struggling to put food on the table and gifts under the tree.

Christmas Wish #8 – Fridge

After Elizabeth was in a hit and run car accident, her family did everything they could to help her. Now, she wants to give back.

Christmas Wish #7 – Swimming

Connor is a 6 year-old boy who’s struggle with ear infections his whole life. All he wants to do is swim.

Christmas Wish #6 – Clothes

Jessica has had a rough year after a blood disorder diagnosis. We grant a wish so Jessica and her son can have some new clothes that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford.

Christmas Wish #5 – Alice

Alice is a young girl living with cancer. Many people wrote to us asking to help her. We grant a wish for her so that she can live in a clean home.

Christmas Wish #4 – Car Seats

After a devastating tragedy, we grant a Christmas Wish for adoptive parents that are looking for the necessities for their new kids.

Christmas Wish #3 – Day Care

Sometimes you just want to give back to those that have been so good to you. When Angie started a new job, she never realized how much like family they would become.

Christmas Wish #2 – Saudi Arabia

Childhood sweethearts who both became teachers are a world apart with one of their kids fighting leukemia. We wanted to do something special for when they reunite for Christmas.

Christmas Wish #1 – Bike

We grant a Christmas Wish for a dad to get back out and get active with his family.
