“Working with Wish of a Lifetime has given me a greater purpose when connecting with the elderly, who I believe are all part of the greatest generation. It is a blessing and honor to witness the pure joy in the eyes of a wish recipient who is so deserving of having a wish granted.”

— Christy, Pasadena, CA
Wish Granting volunteer

“I have nominated many older adults who have had life-changing experiences when their wishes were granted. I love helping a candidate through the application and vetting process, hearing stories, and seeing smiles and tears of joy during a wish.”

— Barb, Greenwood Village, CO
Wish Discovery volunteer

“Valentine’s Day is a day of love, and I’m here to help share the love with others who might walk by. It’s just a beautiful thing to do—I love the idea.”

— Helen, Silver Spring, MD
Wish recipient & Cupid Crew volunteer

“Cupid Crew was so much fun! I’m looking forward to many more volunteer opportunities with Wish of a Lifetime in the future. Helen Keller said, ‘Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.’ I’m grateful to be part of such a great group.”
