Good things come in small packages.
Hole in the wall places have the best food.
It’s the little things that count.
What do all of these have in common? They can easily be used to describe the work we do here at Kids Wish Network.
While we are the second largest wish granting organization, most people are often surprised to learn that we operate out of one office in little ol’ Holiday, FL (for those of you wondering, it’s in the Tampa Bay area). I cannot count the number of times I’ve been on the phone with a facility and they say “Oh, why don’t we meet for lunch and we can discuss this further?” or “Can you come by and explain this to my staff so they can ask any questions they might have?” I just chuckle and say as much as I would love to, I don’t see my manager signing off on that expense report!
Though it would be nice to see everyone face to face, working out of one office not only saves us money but it allows us to help so many more children across the country. We do the same things as the big guys but we do it a little smarter, and sometimes a little better. It’s quality over quantity when it comes to our kids. We want them to get the best out of whatever their wish is. So while we many not have an office in every region across the world, don’t for one second doubt the work we do here. The things that go on inside this little building just might surprise you!
