Each year, many hundreds of children in the Netherlands find out that they have a life-threatening illness. Aside from wanting to get better, these children all have their own private dreams and wishes. Being a real firefighter. Being a prince or princess in a fairy-tale castle. Acting in a real movie. Or meeting a favourite celebrity. Make-A-Wish Netherlands makes these wishes come true. All of them! That way, children with a life-threatening illness get to forget about being a patient and can simply be a child. But making wishes happen takes a lot of effort, both financial and in terms of organisation. And that’s something we can help with!
On Thursday, November 20th from 1PM to 5PM, UP office building is organising a Make-A-Wish Business Challenge. An event where you and other tenants at UP office building can very literally make a wish come true.
Two teams of twelve to eighteen participants, each led by a Wishmaker from Make-A-Wish Netherlands, will work together to make a specific wish happen. The teams will rely on their own network and creativity to get everything organised. The child’s imagination determines the content of the wish, so now it’s up to you and other UP tenants to organise it! Aside from organising a wish, participants of the Business Challenge will raise as many funds as possible. Of course the wish you have organised will be executed as planned. After it’s done, you’ll receive a wish report with pictures and stories. That way, you’ll get a real impression of what your team has accomplished for the wish child and their family.
So don’t hesitate: sign up with your colleagues before the 15th of October and Make a Wish come true!
