Since day one -IB- has been following our belief in helping other troopers and the community at large which also means for us supporting charitable actions. For the last two years we have been donating to the Make-A-Wish fund every month. Some of you have been extremely generous donating while ordering, we matched each donations and added on top. Since we started we have donated nearly 10K US$ to the fund. We will keep our commitment to supporting the fund while also supporting other charities in the future.
The 501st Legion Make-A‐Wish Endowment Fund. This endowment fund intends to empower Make-A-Wish to grant wishes to children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions worldwide by raising $150,000 through Legion fundraising efforts by September 2021.
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true has positive impacts on the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illness, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Headquartered in Phoenix, Make-A-Wish is one of the world’s leading children’s charities, serving children in every community in the United States and its territories. With the help of generous donors and more than 28,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish grants a wish somewhere in the country every 35 minutes. It has granted more than 270,000 wishes since its inception in 1980; more than 14,800 in 2015 alone. Visit Make-A-Wish at www.wish.org to learn more.
