Wish AmbassadorWish recipient Autumn shares her wish story.
Our Wish Ambassador Program aims to further enhance our wish-granting mission. Ambassadors are former wish children who have been invited to share their story and their wish with a variety of audiences. Wish Ambassadors may be asked to appear in media photo shoots, represent the organization at corporate or community events, speak at public engagements and write about their own wish and life experiences.
