Christmas Help for Families: Wish Upon A Hero

5 December 2009 13 Comments
On January 31, 2009, I posted about Wish Upon a Hero, an online community that offers a platform for people to help people. Beginning with this past October, I have received approximate 60 wishes from daughters, mothers, aunts, and grandmothers asking for help in providing clothing and toys for their children this Christmas. Because of their unfortunate circumstances, they are unable to provide presents under the tree.

My recommendation to those in need of help this Christmas or through out the year, open an account on Wish Upon A Hero. Complete their certification process and post your 3 wishes. If you complete their requirements verifying who you are and your situation, then there is a better chance that you will find a Hero to help you provide for your children.

If anyone would like to help one of NanaFinds families in need this Christmas, please leave a comment. Just know, that I too will require verification from everyone involved so no one becomes a victim of a scam.

Wish Upon A Hero True Story

I know of a New Jersey mother who has 5 children. Even though she was able to buy some Christmas presents for her children, she wasn’t able to buy one of her girls the American Girl Doll she desperately wanted. The only hope she had was that a Hero would help. She opened an account with Wish Upon A Hero. A Hero found her and asked why she asked for just the doll. She told him why. He communicated back to her to choose one present for each of her other 4 children up to $50 value and he would provide each child with a Christmas gift.

Anything is possible if you give it a chance.
