Default Make A Wish Foundation


The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. The North Texas MAW foundation is sponsoring MATT, a young man of 15 years, with a WISH to CRUISE ALASKA! Matt hopes to fish, see whales, tour a glacier, and ride on a dog sled! Although Matt has not been on very many vacations, he has seen pictures of his Dad's fishing trip to Alaska, and would very much like to visit Alaska himself. This cruise, scheduled for July 20-28, will be the first for Matt, his older sister Haley, and his Mom and Dad.

Matt enjoys fishing, cooking, and collecting Texaco, Chevron, and Fina trucks. He likes country and Christian music, and sings in the school choir. His favorite subject is history! When he grows up, he hopes to be either a chef, or a motorcycle builder.

Please join me as a fellow cruise lover, and be a part of this Adopt A Wish, Matt's cruise to Alaska! Pease post or email me with any questions, and I will answer them. If you would like to send a personal email wishing Matt well, send it to the email address listed below, and the Make-A-Wish foundation will forward your message to Matt.

It is best to either call 972/450-9474 to donate via credit card or to send a check (note on check for Matt's Cruise Wish!) Donations can be sent to:

The Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas
Occidental Tower
5005 LBJ Freeway
Suite 410
Dallas, TX 75244

Thanks to all of you in advance for your help in adopting Matt's wish!

This is a GREAT cause that I'm unfortunately very close to in a situation here at home. A friends 12 year old daughter has been granted a cruise wish from the local Make a Wish Foundation. The cruise is scheduled for next summer, after her treatments are complete. Now we're all praying she makes it to that ship!
Good job Mermaid putting this together.

Regards,
Kuki

Mermaid -- Glad to see you posting this over here on Cruisemates. The more cruisers that we can involve the better for Matt. I made my donation a while ago -- come on fellow cruisers -- if we all donate a little we can get the job done!

Mermaid thank you for posting the photo of Matt. We sent our check in last month, this is such a good cause to be involved in. Thank you for all of the hard work putting this together so we can support Matt and his family on their cruise.

Happy Cruising,
Kathy R
