NAPLES, Fla., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- As a way to give thanks for his healthy daughters and to help continue the powerful gift of a wish, Warren Sulmasy made a donation to the Make-a-Wish Foundation® in February 2013.
"There is no greater joy in the world than to see a child happy and smiling and this organization does just that by making dreams come true," said Sulmasy.
Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has changed the lives of children with life-threatening conditions by granting their wishes. This simple act of giving has had life-changing impact on not only the child but their family and those involved with the organization.
"This powerful and caring organization began with just one child's wish and it is just incredible how they have grown to be able to help and spread hope to so many," said Sulmasy.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation has expanded its network to include over 25,000 volunteers who work tirelessly to raise funds to be able to make every little child's wish come true.
