I’m more than happy to help a charity on the blog where I can, even if I can only help spread the word a little bit. So when i heard Make-A-Wish had a new campaign they we’re working on, I had to help spread the word.
My first full time job was working in a charity sending out fundraiser cards to help raise money to send poorly local children on once in a life time trips. We had a wall that was full of pictures of these children beaming back at you enjoying that special moment they treasured for ever. So I know full well just how special the work Make-A-Wish do.
Back in the summer of 2010 Make-A-Wish UK granted the wish of five year old May who was fighting a rare cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma – she wished to be a princess for the day. Sadly May passed away just a couple of months after her wish, two years ago today, on 31st August 2010.
May’s family have been involved with Make-A-Wish ever since, raising as much money as they can to ensure that other families going through the same awful experience can have their wish. May’s Dad, Neil, has made this short video and would like as many people as possible to watch it and support Make-A-Wish:
It’s only a minute or so long, so please watch the video if you have a moment to spare. And if you could share it with as many people as you can it would mean so much to Neil and his family. If you are able to make a donation too, to help grant a wish to another child like May, you can ‘Remember May’ at www.justgiving.com/RememberMay.
