LLI recognizes how blessed our families are, and hopes to raise awareness (and funds) this holiday season for a group that needs our help. One Simple Wish Is a non-profit who has been helping many of the 500,000 children in foster care by granting their simple requests. Some of the wishes are toys, shoes, gluten free snacks, sheets, and duffle bags (to help foster children transport their belongings to their foster homes).
"Growing up in foster care, there are things you want, but you never get. I will never forget how One Simple Wish helped me, a former foster kid, fulfill the wish of 6 year old me"- Cheyenne, Wish Recipient from CA
"One Simple Wish has truly changed my life."- Brian, Wish Recipient from NJ
"Children who ask for bicycles, basketballs and laptops yearn to be like their peers, One Simple Wish helps them reach that normalcy."- North Carolina Guardian ad Litem, Partner since 2013
"One of my kids captured it best when she said, 'I used to pray not to have bad dreams, now I just pray I won’t dream at all.' One of the biggest challenges was getting the kids to wish at all, but – time and time again – Danielle and her team have come through for us."- UC Riverside Guardian Scholars, Partner since 2013
"One Simple Wish is an amazing thing! To see these children happy is one of the best gifts and makes me even more thrilled to have this job!"- Indiana Department of Child Services, Partner since 2015
"You made me a happy child"
