Open Wishes

Donations made to grant open wishes are tax deductible. Twilight Wish Foundation will make every effort to ensure that donated funds go to the wish of your choice.

Margaret W., 92, Eureka, CA

Margaret volunteers at the Eureka Rescue Mission and the Senior Resource Center.  During WWII, she worked in a munitions plant in California.  She wanted to attend the annual Rosie the Riveter convention in June to connect with other "Rosies" but it is to far for her to travel at this time.

When the Oregon American Rosie the Riveter Association found out, they invited her to their meeting in September.  They will enjoy lunch, discuss the convention and hear a speech about WWII. 

We need to raise $800 to cover the travel and accomodations for Margaret and her daughter who will accompany her. Please donate to make her wish come true!

We need to raise $400 to make her wish come true.  Please donate today!

Dorothy G., 78, Royal Palm Beach, FL

Thanks to a generous donation from the FT Cares Foundation, Dorothy will have her wish granted!

Dorothy gave much of her time helping her family members before they passed away. She now lives alone and has trouble getting up  from her couch due to a chronic medical condition.  She would like a lift chair to make this easier and she cannot afford one as she lives a fixed income.


Constance E., 71, Farrell, PA

Constance is a volunteer with the nurses guild at her church and serves on the kitchen committee.  She is very proud of her heritage and would like to visit the new National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington DC with her granddaughter.  We need to raise $1,000 to cover the cost of the trip.  Please donate to help make this special wish come true!
