Our “Guardian Angel” donors are all fantastic. It’s as simple as that. All of them care and they all want to help our kids in whatever ways they can. Sometimes, some of them really go above and beyond, and I’d like to tell you all about one of those instances.
We just received a donation from a recently graduated Naugatuck High School student named Andrea, who chose to donate to Kids Wish Network for her senior Capstone project. She told us that there were two goals that she was supposed to meet for this project:
1) to involve the student body and surrounding community, and
2) to raise much needed funds for Kids Wish Network – Andrea’s charity of choice
Not only did she meet those goals, but she exceeded them spectacularly! After nine months of rallying her peers and local community, Andrea was able to raise over $2,000 for two wish kids, Aiden and McKenna. Talk about teamwork!
Andrea sent us a letter along with her donation, explaining her choice of project and thanking us for what we do for kids in need. I thought it would be nice to share some of her letter with you:
Last year, I learned of two small children, McKenna and Aiden, who faced incredible adversity due to extreme health conditions. Throughout this school year, it has been my intention to not let them down, doing all I could do to help raise money and awareness for your cause.
Thank you for this incredible opportunity to work with Kids Wish Network as the main focus for my Capstone project. The Capstone project is a culminating senior effort, and I can think of no better way to finish my four years in high school than working on behalf of McKenna and Aiden.
Andrea, your work in raising funds to help grant the wishes of these deserving children is truly inspiring, as is your amazing ability to get your fellow students and your local community involved in a worthy cause. We at Kids Wish Network would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts and proclaim you a true “Guardian Angel.”
