Make a Wish: Priscillas Wish

We joined the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Southern Florida to help them make Priscilla’s Hawaiian dreams come true. Our 1 Community 1 Team squad also happens to love Moana and wanted to throw the biggest surprise party for her!

About Make-A-Wish Foundation

A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a critical illness. This one belief guides us in everything we do at Make-A-Wish. It inspires us to grant life-changing wishes for children going through so much. It compels us to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible. Most of all, it’s the founding principle of our vision to grant the wish of every eligible child. Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved—wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.

How it Started

We partnered with Make-A-Wish Foundation when we heard about Priscilla – an adorable and adventurous 8 year old born with a heart condition as a result of Polyhydraminos in utero. Priscilla has spent most of her life in hospitals, but she has not let that keep her from reaching for the stars!

Priscilla’s first wish was to visit the tropical paradise of Hawaii, but unfortunately the current travel restrictions due to COVID-19 made that impossible. Her second wish was to have a pool that her and her family could enjoy together.

1 Community 1 Team decided to combine both of her wishes by surprising her and her family with an above ground pool and brought Hawaii to her! Our big reveal consisted of designing their yard to look like Hawaii, with picnic tables, a tiki bar, beach sandbox, surf shack and a surfboard.
