Making it all possible
The Legacy Collective—an exclusive group of individuals—makes this all possible by funding the overhead required to grant and promote wishes. This support is leveraged to allow other contributors (Wish Champions) to directly fund wishes. It is an investment in a team of expert wish granters and storytellers (Wish of a Lifetime staff) on a mission to shift perceptions on aging. An investment whose return is measured in the number of lives changed by wish granting.
