About Us

In 2006, Danielle Gletow & her husband Joe became foster parents and it changed their lives forever.


The Gletows journey into foster care began when an 18 month-old little boy nervously entered their home wearing a coat two sizes too big after being removed abruptly from his abusive home. Over the next two years they learned so much more about the children living in the foster care system, the resources they were going without, the lack of awareness in the general public and the support these children desperately needed and deserved. They knew they had to do more for children in foster care and vowed to commit their lives to doing it.

One Simple Wish was born in 2008 to empower everyone to brighten the lives of children in foster care in simple, yet meaningful ways. All children deserve happy childhoods. One Simple Wish creates them.
