I received this email today :
“If you had one wish coming your way before you left this earth, what would it be? Something practical like help with a heating bill? A special present for your child—the toy she was hoping would come for Christmas? Or maybe a last hurrah, like camping in the mountains, or chance to catch, then eat, the biggest fish ever.
A nonprofit organization called Dream Foundation grants thousands of wishes like these every year. To qualify, you just have to live in the United States, be at least 18 years old, and have heard the very hard news that you probably have one year or less to live.
No dreamer has ever been turned down who meets this description.
Wouldn’t it be nice if such organisations didn’t need to exist? I hope this email is of no interest to you are anyone you know, but, sadly it may well be.
