In 1982 my grandmother Ruby Pickard founded My Wish Inc. to grant wishes to terminally ill children. I accompanied her when she granted that first wish when I was only eight-years-old.
The boy wanted an American flag for his home, a humble request and one that left a powerful mark on my spirit.
Our first “Wild Wish” was letting a young girl meet a zebra.
“Wild Wishes” grants exotic animal encounters for children in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma who have lost a parent, sibling or have a terminal illness. We have been making kids wildlife encounter dreams come true for years, now we are doing it in a very special way through “Wild Wishes”.
A few weeks ago we got to grant wishes for two sisters-one wanted to meet an owl-the other have a horse encounter. It was a moving experience for all of us and we are so honored and privileged to have had the opportunity to do this for these girls.
To Christ be the glory!
