Meet Our Philanthropy Chairs!
This is Elisabeth and Katie, and we are honored to have the opportunity to serve as the Philanthropy Chairs for Chi Omega this year.
Make-A-Wish believes that wishes make life better for kids with life-threatening illnesses. This simple but powerful belief inspired the founding of Make-A-Wish and drives everything they do. We have absolutely loved getting to work with this incredible foundation to be able to offer these kids the chance to make lasting memories with their families and forget about their illnesses even for just a moment. We fundraise because no matter the circumstances, every child deserves a childhood. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope.
Last semester, our Alpha Beta chapter was able to successfully fundraise to grant wishes for the Make-A-Wish Alabama through our even Crawfish with Chi O. Over the course of the past year, we were able to raise approximately $17,404. We are in the process of planning more events that we can’t wait to share with you. Due to COVID-19, more than ever, Make-A-Wish needs our help. Life-changing wishes wouldn't happen without the power of donors like you. Your support gives children much-needed hope for brighter days ahead. We would love for you to join us as we raise support, hope, and excitement for these kids.
