There’s nothing quite like the fun of helping a child have a joyful experience and create a precious family memory.
So when Service Champions had a chance through the Make-A-Wish foundation to send a special little girl on a dream cruise to meet her most beloved Disney character Ariel, we were thrilled to be able to do it.
Many people are aware of the Make-A-Wish foundation and their mission to grant wishes to critically ill children.
The wishes they grant are transformational experiences that makes a special dream come true for a child facing serious adversity. For Make-A-Wish recipients and their families, these experiences represent tremendous relief and respite.
Recently, we had an opportunity to grant a special wish for an adorable 9-year-old girl named Rylie. Rylie likes board games, one of her favorite foods is pepperoni, and she enjoys the ocean and the creatures in it. And she LOVES all things Disney – especially Ariel, the famous Disney princess in the movie The Little Mermaid.
Rylie also battles the rare disease Ataxia Telangiectasia, also known by the acronym AT or Louis-Bar Syndrome.
With the expertise of Make-A-Wish guiding us, Service Champions was pleased to be able to host Rylie and her family at our offices for a special day of Disney-related activities.
This beautiful day was capped off by revealing to Rylie and her family that they would be going on a Disney cruise, where they would be sharing a boat with Mickey Mouse and other famous characters – including Ariel of course!
Her gracious and smiling parents Tim and Erica talked about how much taking this cruise would mean to Rylie.
“This is really an incredible opportunity for Rylie,” Tim said. “It just really means a lot that there’s organizations and companies that give back to kids.”
For our part, we’re honored to be able to give back with this ‘Good Deed In The Community.’ We love Make-A-Wish and its mission. In fact, Service Champions is a proud annual supporter of Make-A-Wish Orange County and Inland Empire since 2010 and has donated more than $100,000, which has helped 18 local children to receive their heartfelt wish.
If you’d like to see Rylie’s special day at our offices and the revealing of the wish, you can go here to see the video. And be sure to watch to the end – there are some great photos of Rylie of her family on the cruise – it sure looks like they had a truly wonderful time!
