Have you ever wanted to change someone's life? I know I have – and that's why I am fundraising along with the BCHS InterAct Club for Make-A-Wish Connecticut. We've set a goal of raising $1,000 and need your help to reach it.
I'm excited that the InterAct Club at my high school is working with such a great organization and that I have the chance to help grant wishes. It's amazing what a wish, come true, can do for a kid! Parents, doctors, nurses, and volunteers agree that a wish can help wish kids fight harder against their illnesses. And I think that every wish brings a little more kindness and joy into the world.
Watch this short video to see members of the InterAct Club promote why your donation matters! 
Check out this article to see how past donations have impacted our community! 
More kids are waiting for their wishes. We can help. Will you please donate to my fundraiser?
Thank you!
NEXT week Caitlen will visit our ZOOM meeting to talk about this fundraiser!
