PLAINVIEW, N.Y. (July 2019): Olivia Talalay loves American Girl dolls, and enjoys crafting all kinds of realistic accessories for them. Olivia has a life-threatening autoimmune disorder, and her dolls spark her imagination, giving her a positive creative outlet to express herself.
Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, made her dream come true, purchasing Olivia a generous gift card to the American Girl store that she can use to add to her growing collection. She’s has had her eye on a bowling alley play set for her dolls and can’t wait to go shopping!
“We’re happy that Olivia’s wish further inspires her creativity and puts a focus on her hobby that creates so much happiness,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
Kids Wish Network is a national charitable organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children with life-threatening conditions and struggling with life-altering situations. KWN provides for trip expenses, meals, accommodations and additional spending monies to all wish families whenever traveling as applicable.
