What is Wishing for Mommy?
Managed by Dignity Kids, Inc. a nonprofit organization based out of Arizona, the Wishing for Mommy initiative aims to empower children in being able to write out their feelings while they are experiencing a [typically] difficult time within their household. In order to apply for a Wishing for Mommy grant, a loving relative or best friend is required to write out a one-page story of what their wish is for their mommy (what they would do for her to help her through her battle with breast cancer if they were given the $500 to do so) since often a child or loved ones feel like they are “helpless to improve the circumstances”. Sometimes using the money to pay bills that are mounting, or bring in a loved one to assist the family or take a mini-vacation so that the family can spend quality time together.
