On Friday, June 17, we launched our Give Wishes Wings campaign with the help of KITV4 and 947 KUMU! With a goal of $50,000 to kick off the summer-long campaign, the final count at 7 p.m. announced a grand total of over $60,000, not including the entirety of a $25,000 donation made by Honolulu Cookie Company.
The radiothon aired heartfelt testimonies by wish families—the children affected by life-changing medical diagnoses and their parents—and encouraged community members to call in and make financial gifts that would be matched dollar-for-dollar by an anonymous donor. Every donation was also supplemented with miles by Alaska Airlines to quite literally make wishes take flight for the 600 wish children actively planning their wish this summer.
While the radiothon has officially concluded, the summer campaign is in full swing and continues on through the end of August. Donations are welcome at any time and will continue to be matched both dollar-for-dollar and by miles.
