Of course, we know people are busy, and don’t have time to fill out paperwork. To show our appreciation for completing our survey, we make a $50 donation in each client’s name to any one of the charities listed below that they choose.
Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation’s mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish® experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities.
The dream of 7-year-old Chris Greicius to be a police officer led to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Though he was critically ill with leukemia, Chris was treated to a day as a police officer in an effort to lift the boy’s spirits. A mere week before he died, the Arizona Department of Public Safety indulged his desire with a helicopter ride, tour of the city in a police cruiser, and a custom-made police uniform. Chris was also sworn in as the first honorary DPS patrolman in state history.
The ability to help a child see his dream come true transformed from these humble beginnings in 1980 into the global phenomenon it is today, reaching more than 144,000 children around the world.
A network of more than 25,000 volunteers enable the Make-A-Wish Foundation to serve children with life-threatening medical conditions. Volunteers serve as wish granters, fundraisers, special events assistants and in numerous other capacities.
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is the leading charitable funder and advocate of type 1 (juvenile) diabetes research worldwide. The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Type 1 diabetes is a disease which strikes children suddenly and requires multiple injections of insulin daily or a continuous infusion of insulin through a pump. Insulin, however, is not a cure for diabetes, nor does it prevent its eventual and devastating complications which may include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke, and amputation.
Since its founding in 1970 by parents of children with type 1 diabetes, JDRF has awarded more than $1.16 billion to diabetes research, including more than $137 million in FY2007. In FY2007, the Foundation funded 700 centers, grants and fellowships in 20 countries.
