Over the years we have and will continue to donate and support numerous charitable foundations. Below is a list of some of the organizations with whom we work.
A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a life-threatening medical condition.This one belief guides them in everything they do at Make-A-Wish®. It inspires them to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids they serve. It compels them to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives them to make their donated resources go as far as possible.
Most of all, it's the founding principle of their vision to grant the wish of every eligible child. Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved - wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.
Whatever the odds, whatever the obstacles ... wishes find a way to make the world better.
Williams syndrome (WS) is a genetic condition that is present at birth and can affect anyone. It is characterized by medical problems, including cardiovascular disease, developmental delays, and learning disabilities. These often occur side by side with striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities and an affinity for music. The Williams Syndrome Association (WSA) was formed in 1982 by, and for, families of individuals with Williams syndrome.
The WSA is the most comprehensive resource for people and families living with WS as well as doctors, researchers and educators. The WSA provides resources, support and the latest medical information to help your child today and throughout his/her life.
No matter the age or stage of your family member with WS, you are not alone. The WSA offers support and will help you navigate the challenges from diagnosis through adulthood.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
Catholic Charities USA is a national organization that offers support to member agencies, provides disaster relief and promotes poverty-reduction through research and legislative reform. They believe that every person has inherent dignity from the moment of conception to natural death and that the measure of every institution is whether it threatens or enhances the life and dignity of the human person. They believe that in a society marred by deepening divisions between rich and poor, the needs of the poor and vulnerable must be put first.
