Share the Joy of Summer

Double Your Impact!

Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas, in partnership with Moonshine Sweet Tea, is excited to announce our Share the Joy of Summer fundraising campaign. Starting today through August 31st, you can DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT! Dollar for dollar, your donation will be matched up to $50,000, thanks to the generosity of our friends at Moonshine Sweet Tea. Your gift will allow us to grant life-changing wishes to 20 children right here in central and south Texas.

And together, we will transform lives one wish at a time for kids like....

Melanie was diagnosed with cancer a week after her 3rd birthday. Since then, she has spent weeks in the hospital surrounded by all her favorite princesses and animal friends. When we walked in her room with a bag of goodies, her face lit up and her smile stretched from ear to ear. She knew why we were there and was ready to tell us her meet all her favorite princesses!

Two years ago Jagger was diagnosed with a Wilms' tumor. His mother said hearing that news was like being hit by a train. The 17 months that followed were full of fear, uncertainty and many sleepless nights. Jagger had a difficult time and it was a while before he began responding to treatment. Now in remission and ready to get back to doing the things he loves, he and his family will be heading to Paws Up Ranch & Resort in Montana where he'll get to hike, swim, raft and most importantly, just be a kid again.

Tyra was diagnosed with a brain stem glioma on her 8th birthday. The news knocked her mom off her feet. The tumor was benign and most was removed by surgery. A year later, she started having symptoms again. Scans revealed the tumor growing, not only on her brain stem but down the length of her spinal cord. Tyra is currently on heavy doses of chemo and radiation which will continue for another year. To help her cope, Tyra does a Christmas toy drive to provide toys to other sick children and to those in need. This summer, Tyra's wish to go on a shopping spree will come true, and her mom tells us, "Tyra is beyond excited!"
