#GivingTuesday with Angelwish

angelwish

Angelwish is a nonprofit organization that helps busy people grant birthday and holiday wishes to children living with chronic illnesses such as asthma, diabetes, and HIV/AIDS, among many others.

If you’ve ever participated in a physical toy drive, you know how time consuming, impersonal, and costly it can be for everyone. Angelwish was created to fix the process so that everyone benefits from this wonderful holiday tradition, ensuring that more of the money goes to the gift for the child who needs it. Compared to standard toy drives, Angelwish improves productivity and efficiency by over 90%. By working with Dwolla it helps them even more because at the most, it only costs them $0.25 to process the transaction, which means less fees they have to pay and more wishes they can grant.

Using Angelwish couldn’t be any easier. Simply go to angelwish.org and click on “Grant a Wish.” Find one of their 125+ locations around the world to support. Find the wish of a child that you connect with. Add the items to your cart and check out using Dwolla, and you’re done.

Through their online giving platform, Angelwish has helped grant over $2.5M worth of wishes to children all over the world, by getting both individuals and corporations, such as Goldman Sachs and Fidelity Investments, involved.

On the recipient side, Angelwish ships those items within a few days to a hospital social worker who can establish a stronger relationship with the parent. The parent is ultimately the person who gets to wrap and give the gift to their child, becoming the hero in their eyes.

Angelwish believes in the bigger picture. Getting these children healthy enough to manage their illness means they miss less school and get a better education. That leads to better job prospects and, hopefully, a way for them to break the poverty cycle.

Head on over to Angelwish today, and help grant the wish of a child.
