Turtle & Hughes
Thank you for joining my fundraiser in support of Make-A-Wish International.
Chiara’s New York Dreams
April 29th is World Wish Day and the employees of Turtle & Hughes are banding together to make one very special wish come true for Chiara, a teenager from Italy who is affected by Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Throughout the month of April, Turtle & Hughes will be raising funds to grant Chiara’s wish to “discover the wonders of the Big Apple” during a trip to New York City. Chiara dreams of doing it all – take a ride in Central Park, see the lights of Times Square, visit Lady Liberty and sample the goodies at Carlo’s Bakery. After years of medical treatment, this strong young woman is ready to start her new life knowing that her wish will come true this September.
For children battling a serious illness, like Chiara, wishes can make a big difference in their recovery. A wish inspires hope and uplifts spirits by encouraging patients to believe in the impossible. There is nothing more powerful than a child's wish except for the volunteers, donors and supporters who make them come true.
We thank you for your generosity and support. As an organization, we are proud to continue our partnership with Make-A-Wish and can’t wait to welcome Chiara and her family to New York City!
