Project: Grant a Wish Ripple Kid: Calista, 11, PANeed: Donations to help her grant a wishDeadline: December 18th
Hi! I am Calista Pierce and I am 11 years old. When I found out that my brother qualified for a wish through Make-A-Wish, I wanted to know all about the organization. After reading a lot of wish kids' stories, I decided that I want to fund a wish. I really believe that a wish has the power to cure kids suffering from life threatening medical conditions. The cost of the average wish is $3,400.00 and so far, I have raised just over $2,000.00. My goal is to raise enough money to fund a wish before we go to Erie for the annual Light Up A Child's Life Make-A-Wish fundraising event on December 18th. I have lots of crafts for sale or you can make a donation via PayPal on my website at
Buy a Christmas gift and help grant a wish!
Please help me grant a wish! Thank you so much! ~ Calista ____________________________________________________________
