In 1982, I got to accompany my grandmother Ruby Pickard on a very important mission.
She granted a little boy with leukemia his “wish” which was to have an American flag hanging outside his home. She of course made that happen and much more and founded My Wish Inc. an organization which granted wishes to more than 250 terminally ill children in Southeast Texas.
In honor of her we have added “Wild Wishes” to our outreach at Children’s Kingdom Ministries.
We are making animal encounter dreams come true with children who have had a loss in their family, terminal illness or have simply had an extremely rough go of it. It’s not something we publicize a whole lot because we want it to be about the wish, not our deeds but so far we have granted three of these wishes.
Our first was a sweet girl who wanted to meet a zebra, which you can see here.
Part of your donations helps us do “Wild Wishes” and we are eternally thankful. If you would like to learn more you can email me at Chester@kingdomzoo.com
