Downey Insurance Supports the Make-A-Wish Foundation

Just yesterday, the Downey Insurance Group made a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Vermont. This incredible cause helps make wishes come true for children who have life-threatening medical conditions. It not only gives them hope, but gives them courage to keep going.

In 1989, the Vermont chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation began, and since then, over 500 children and families lives have been affected. The mission of the  Make-A-Wish Foundation is truly inspiring and one that I hold dear to my heart.

My brother, who was diagnosed with ulcerated colitis at age two, was granted a wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Usually, kids wishes are to go on a family vacation, or meet someone famous, but my brother instead chose to wish for a dog. The Make-A-Wish Foundation made that happen for him, and now we have the most wonderful dog. He has been with us for over ten years, and now, my brother is colitis free at age twenty.

With just a little donation, another child could have the chance for their wish come true too, and that is why it is important to give back. Downey Insurance recognizes this and has joy helping out the community. You can help too, if you make a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, your gift could change the life of a child.
