Coming Together for Micah

Meet 4-year-old Micah, a brave Wish Kid battling a life-threatening medical condition on top of seizures. His heartfelt wish is to be able to live comfortably with his family despite the medical equipment that surrounds them.

Numerous community partners have come together to help us renovate Micah's main living area, where he spends most of his days. Well-known designer, Jamie Smith Jackson of Jamie Jackson Design, is overseeing the re-design and has helped to connect our staff with other industry experts! Volunteers from Heald College have graciously stepped up to help us with the heavy lifting.

Medical equipment currently occupies most of the space in their home, which makes it hard for the family to gather comfortably, but it is family time that brings so much joy to Micah. With the donated expertise of Jamie Jackson Design in conjunction with Organized Hawaii, we are transforming this space to be both safe and comfortable - how everyone deserves to feel in their home. 

We are so humbled to have so much community support in granting the wish of Micah, who is an inspiration to us all. See some of the behind-the-scenes photos below, captured by Darcy Fiero Photography, and stay tuned for the grand reveal!
