The Sunshine Foundation – Share Your Page Wednesday

My daughter as Sunny, the Sunshine Foundation mascot

Today’s Share Your Page featured site is one that is close to our home and hearts.

The Sunshine Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that exists to provide dream wishes to chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children.

The Sunshine Foundation was started in 1976 by Bill Sample, a Philadelphia police officer who was stationed as a guard at a children’s hospital. After seeing how parents struggled to provide the basics and pay for medical treatment, he decided to give these families the gift of a lifetime; he’d grant the child’s wish.

The Sunshine Foundation provides many types of wishes, including adaptive equipment and vacations. Nestled in the heart of Florida is the Sunshine Foundation Dream Village, a community of cottages providing a home-away-from-home for families who visit the central Florida theme parks for their wish.

The Sunshine Foundation depends on donors and volunteers to keep the organization running. Take a look at their website and see the good things that are happening!
