We are a couple weeks into raising funds for Make-A-Wish, and you’ve already pushed us way over the halfway mark! A reminder that I’m offering to blog for 41 straight hours – NO SLEEP – at the MLB Trade Deadline if we can raise $8,500 to support the incredible work that Make-A-Wish does for kids and families who really need it. Please go here to donate! Thank you for doing good!
Through your efforts over past Blogathons, you’ve raised more than $147,000 for Make-A-Wish to transform your passion for baseball into some real, impactful good in this world. To that end, I wanted to share some of that good, with a story involving a Wish kiddo, the Chicago Cubs, and a very timely wish.
From Make-A-Wish Illinois:
Brody from Northbrook is heading to the MLB All-Star Game this week!
Brody, 6, from Northbrook is sports-obsessed and a huge Cubs fan. Diagnosed with leukemia, Brody is recovering well and back to playing t-ball, throwing the ball with his cousin, and watching baseball on television.
With help from the Northwestern University baseball team, Brody learned his wish to attend the 2022 MLB All-Star game would be granted! He’s headed to Los Angeles with his family.
This is why we support Make-A-Wish, and why I appreciate so much that you help make the Blogathon work. These moments – these memories – that the kids and their families get to experience make for real joy, real memories, and real respite from anything else they might have going on. It matters. Thank you!
