Where have all my applications gone?
I am supposed to get around 20 applications back per month. But I’m not. For some reason, the applications just aren’t coming in.
I’ve gone through this before. Sometimes we just hit a slump. This has been the longest slump I’ve witnessed, though. I have to admit it; I’m starting to get worried.
I just checked out my numbers and in the past two months I have sent out 108 applications. You would think they would be rolling in! But they just aren’t.
Getting the applications back is one of my most favorite aspects of my job at Kids Wish Network. I get to unofficially meet our new potential wish kids, find out what they want for their wish and read about the life-threatening illnesses that have led our kids’ parents to fill out the application. I also get to see their cute faces, as we require that the applications be submitted with a recent photo. It really is a fun job!
So, if you have recently spoken with me over the phone and received a wish application via postal mail or email, get that sucker filled out and mail it back to me! We can’t grant your child’s wish without that application!
