During the Whirligig contest. each entry submitted money was donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I of course built the Superman Whirligig. This contest was put on by some of my favorite YouTube content providers Laney Shaughnessy and Steve Ramsey. I not only built a Whirligig to help this cause, but after finishing it, I then sold it and sent all the money to Make-A-Foundation.
If you would like to help Make-A-Wish by helping them grant a wish to a child here is the link to the Donate Site. Make-A-Wish is a great foundation to get involved with. I encourage you to check it out and donate if you can.
Also a Local Radio Station does a requestathon every year to raise money for Make-A-Wish. Check out theirs this year. 99.5 WZPL. You can stream live from their website or if you live the Indianapolis area you can tune in on the radio at 99.5. To hear the stories from the kids is very moving, don’t forget to grab your tissues. This year the local radio station has raised over $575,000. This granted 72 wishes to kids that was dealt a bad hand. The kids that was on the show will break your heart, you would not believe how strong these kids are. It makes me thankful for how easy I have it with two Healthy kids.
The month of December 2014 any money donated to M.F. Wood Shop will go right to the Make-A-Wish.
