Beautiful Memories: Becoming A Wish Granter Through The Make-A-Wish Foundation

Co-written by Julie Tortorici

For today’s post, I’m going to stray a bit from my usual must-have styling tips to write about something that I just had to share. On Thursday, June 6th, Make-A-Wish New York, will be holding their annual Power of a Wish Gala . As I’m sure many of you know, the Make-A-Wish Foundation grants wishes to critically ill children. This organization has been very close to my heart since having the chance, seven years ago, to serve as a Wish Granter through the Make-A-Wish Foundation Hawaii. One of my proudest moments was being able to help fulfill a child’s wish of meeting Justin Bieber in New York. More important, was having the chance to speak with some of the children and their families who have had to face the tremendous challenges that come with severe illness. I have no doubt that the upcoming gala being held here in New York will be just as impactful to its guests as it was for me way back when in Hawaii.

I’ll be back here giving you hair and makeup tips in no time, but if you have a moment, check out this wonderful organization. Better yet, if you can, consider becoming a Wish Granter yourself. Become a Wish Granter. Trust me, it’ll be a beautiful experience.
