Each year, we ask Board and Advisory Board Members, past Ambassadors and staff to nominate individuals/companies who clearly represent and dedicate time and effort to promote Wishes & More® to their professional and personal networks. We proudly recognize each of our Ambassadors and are honored to be the recipient of their support.
The office is always busy, and we have a variety of tasks for those who wish to help out in the office during business hours. Some regular office tasks involve writing thank-you notes to our donors, data entry, bookkeeping, filing, assisting with wish paperwork and preparing mailings, only to name a few.
Wish Granting Volunteers
Volunteers are needed to assist in making the wishes happen. Duties range from setting up a vacation (travel wish), soliciting or shopping for items (gift wish), creating a vocation for a day (ex. a child wishes to be a police officer), or setting up a meeting with a celebrity (child wishes to meet someone). Time commitment of 1-2 wishes per quarter. Time is as needed dependent upon the complexity of the wish.
Marketing Volunteers are responsible for creating press releases, newsletters, brochures and other marketing collateral. Skills sought: media connections, writing/editing experience, marketing background or other related experience.
Volunteers are needed to personalize each wish. Creativity is a must. Attend meetings to determine personalization of each wish and occasionally make presentations to children. Willingness to shop for and solicit items that will enhance the wish, i.e. a package of fishing tackle and tackle box before a fishing trip. Time commitment is six months.
