Charity for Charity beneficiaries
Charity for Charity beneficiaries are some of the most incredible individuals you’ll ever meet. Our beneficiaries are either struggling with a life-threatening illness or a traumatic injury, which, for anyone without either of these, would think it was the most devastating or depressing thing you could ever deal with. What we have found, is that these individuals are the most positive, non-complaining, humble and determined humans you could ever meet. Whether they are surrounded by family, friends or have non, these special people come to us with a smile, even amidst some tears. They all share the positive attitude that they will overcome and fight the good fight. Even those who have passed on, were inspiring us as much as we inspired them, up to the last breath.
People ask how we choose our beneficiaries. Well, it’s not easy. We accept applications online from the beneficiaries themselves, a family member, a close friend, or sometimes from a stranger. Once we gather all the applications, our Advisory Board meets, reads all the applications and then must choose the main beneficiaries for that coming year. Here’s what helps us get through the tough part… we always do SOMETHING for EVERY nominated beneficiary even if they don’t get selected as our main for that year.
When you are dealing with a life-threatening illness or traumatic injury, you are not at a place financially, emotionally or otherwise, to do something you’ve always dreamed to do. BUT, when someone surprises you with a wish, you are obligated to accept and participate without guilt. Our wishes are so much more then wishes, for some, it takes them out of the pain and struggle for even just a moment. For others, its their families last special memory to treasure.
