Charity Spotlight: One Simple Wish

Shep and I both feel very lucky to have been given the opportunities we have in life, and we strongly believe in supporting our communities to help those who are less fortunate.  One organization that's quickly becoming one of my favorites to follow and support is One Simple Wish.  One Simple Wish was founded by a NJ mom in 2008 with the mission of brightening the lives of foster children.

As of today, One Simple Wish is less than $50,000 away from raising ONE MILLION DOLLARS of support for children in foster care this year.  That is a huge milestone, and a goal I certainly want to help reach!  One of my favorite things about One Simple Wish is seeing the very large impact that many small donations can have.

If you're inspired and would like to make a small donation to help reach the million dollar mark, please visit:  http://www.crowdrise.com/onemillionstrong.  Every dollar helps!

For more information about how One Simple Wish makes the lives of kids in foster brighter each day, please check out:  http://www.onesimplewish.org/howitworks.  Granting wishes is simple, fun and most of all, very impactful!  Something as modest to you and me as personal toiletries, a class photo, or a new pair of "cool" sneakers can make a big difference in the life of a foster child.  Many foster children face incredibly difficult circumstances in their lives -- if something as simple as a new book, toy, game or item of clothing can bring a smile to their faces, I'm honored to be able to provide that for them!
