Today, a small group of the Northern Iowa Wishmakers joined a crowd of hundreds to help support the Make A Wish foundation chapter of Dubuque, Iowa in their efforts of granting wishes to kids locally in the area. They did just that and more by raising over $20,000 for this single event!! This is huge everybody. What a great way to start a Sunday morning with the sun shining, the sky blue and knowing that you helped support an event that has the potential to grant 3 wishes to children in the area with the money that they have raised. This event could not have been any better. When you stop and think that a community of volunteers put this event and raising this amount of money lights a fire in my eyes. It was great to see the passion and drive that this group of volunteers had to make this event as successful as it was. We can change lives. It does not have to be just as this was either, it can be in your own way. We can make an impact on the lives of others and it can be just as simple as going out on a Sunday and walking 3 miles. If we come together we can accomplish anything that we set our minds to. I am going to leave you with a quote:
“Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the moon”.
This says to me that no one can tell you what you can and can not accomplish, you decide that for yourself. But if you set your mind to it, and with a little help and support great things can be accomplished.
