Make A Wish North Texas & Cadillac Cares

This month on the Metroplex Cadillac Dealers‘ FB page something exciting is happening:

Four Dallas-Fort Worth area charities are competing for a $50,000 ad budget prizethe “losers” are going home with money too.

  • Big Thought
  • The Family Place
  • Make-A-Wish North Texas
  • Heroes for Children

YOU can help choose the winner by voting in the Cadillac Cares Challenge (and you can vote daily).

This is all such a win-win situation and thought it would be fun to highlight each charity here on She is Dallas over the next week with a little “lobbying” from DFW bloggers who support each cause.

Make-A-Wish North Texas Chapter.

Make-A-Wish’s mission is:   We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

The North Texas Chapter grants more than 300 wishes a year.   They also assist other chapters with arrangements for wishes being granted in this area.   Overall, Make-A-Wish makes 12,000 wishes come true a year across the nation.

Make A Wish kidIf you have been reading my blog for any amount of time then you know how deep my love for the Make-a-Wish Foundation runs!

My daughter was a Wish kid and her Wish trip was truly a blessing for our family.   We not only take part in the yearly 5K local to us but we also participate in many activities throughout the year.   We have developed a close relationship with several of the Make-a-Wish Foundation workers.   The whole organization is just amazing!
