While the families of children diagnosed with terminal diseases strive to enrich the time they have to spend with their loved ones, the high costs of medical bills often prevents them from enjoying trips or other enriching experiences. Wishes & More helps Minnesota-area children with terminal or life-threatening conditions and their families by granting wishes for activities, vacations, sporting adventures, and more.
Since being diagnosed with a progressive and fatal neuromuscular disorder, a local 2-year-old girl named Zaitun has spent most of her life in the hospital. The decision has been made for her to return home to live with her family and receive hospice care. However, since most of her life has been spent in the hospital, her parents can no longer afford to create a nursery for her. Wishes & More would like to furnish the nursery her parents envisioned, completing it with a glider rocker in which she and her parents can bond, as well as other furnishings, bedding, and decorations.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help make Zeitun's move home for hospice care more comfortable for both her and her family. If G-Team members raise $450, Wishes & More can purchase a glider rocker in which Zaitun and her family can bond in their home. Each additional $10 raised will go toward a new dresser, bedding, and room decorations to complete Zaitun’s home nursery.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
