Shopping Wish Makes Student Happy

KENON, Minn. (October 2019): Like most teens, Somer loves to go shopping. In other ways she feels very different, dealing with the extra stresses of having an autoimmune condition that has been challenging for her mentally and physically. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, made her dream come true, purchasing Somer generous gift cards so she can have fun picking out all of her favorite things. She received the Happy Student gift card that she can use at Dell, JCPenney, Bed Bath & Beyond, Burger King and her favorite store American Eagle, and another gift card for Macy’s and H&M. Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai said, “Somer will love using her gift cards to shop for the things she’s been hoping for.”
