Help Make One Simple Wish Come True

by Press Release | Nov 24, 2015
Help Make One Simple Wish Come True One Simple Wish is a nonprofit organization that grants wishes to foster children, at-risk youth and impoverished families. They are a relatively new organization and have recently begun granting wishes in the South Jersey areas to many children in foster care as well as children who are part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program in Camden, Burlington and Gloucester counties.

They are providing a new way for citizens of NJ to help these children in need by allowing them to browse their wishes posted on the One Simple Wish website and select a specific wish to grant. With the holidays approaching, they are receiving and granting more wishes than ever before. But they still need your help.

One Simple Wish has established a network of Community Partners--so far about 35 social service agencies, community outreach programs and residential facilities in NJ that serve foster children, at-risk youth and impoverished families. These organizations submit wishes to One Simple Wish on behalf of the specific individuals they serve--many of them foster children who, without organizations like ours, might do without things like prom tickets, graduation photos, participation in sporting events and trips to museums, movies and amusement parks.

One Simple Wish helps educate the community about the wonderful work being done by their nonprofit partners while at the same time allowing these partners to focus on their missions while One Simple Wish takes care of the "extras" like birthday parties for the kids, new backpacks for school, art lessons and other items and experiences most children view as common expectations.
