ASP and Make-A-Wish® Shine a Light of Hope
By Cliff Sampogna, Regional Manager - Residential/Commercial
ASP Security has partnered with Make-A-Wish® and will be supporting their mission to grant life-changing wishes to children battling critical illnesses.
Wishes give children renewed energy and strength, bring families closer together, and unite communities. Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. By fundraising in support of Make-A-Wish, we have the unique ability to transform a child and family’s life during some of their most difficult trials. Every dollar we raise is crucial to the mission of granting the wish of every eligible child.
To protect the health of wish kids and their families, Make-A-Wish has paused wish-granting that involves travel and gatherings until August 31st. Right now, there are a record number of wish kids whose wishes have been postponed because of COVID-19 — and that number grows every day as this crisis continues.
This means wishes are now waiting. For our wish kids, every day of waiting is one too many. And now more than ever, hope is essential. With your support, Make-A-Wish is committed to ensuring that no child waits even one unnecessary day to experience the hope and joy that a wish brings. Thank you for helping us through this challenging time.
Here are just a few of the wishes granted recently:
- Twelve-year-old Yolanda faced a difficult battle with cancer and was thrilled to have her wish for Apple electronics granted.
- Xander, 14, went through cancer treatmentand his wish for a sports equipment shopping spree has renewed his strength.
- Matthew is a nine-year-old cancer survivorand he was very excited to have his wish for “the ultimate game room” granted.
- Bethany, 12, was diagnosed with a brain tumor. As someone who loves the great outdoors, herwish for a camping trailer was the perfect wish-come-true.
- Four-year-old Gabriel’s smile on his wish day says it all! Gabriel lives with a neurodegenerative disorder and for his wish he asked for entertainment electronics.
- Anthony is 10 years old and has a neuromuscular disease. His wish for a video game room ismaking time spent at home more fun for him and his brother.
