When a co-worker forwarded me an email titled “Announcing America’s ONLY Wedding Wish Granting Organization,” my immediate thoughts went straight to “DE-LIGHT!” Even before I opened the email and read the press release in its entirety, I knew there had to be something magical in store… and magic, my dear friends, is exactly what I found.
Wish Upon a Wedding is a brand new (for real – their launch party was yesterday 1.28.2010) nonprofit organization whose intentions and goals are nothing short of extraordinary. As America’s only wedding wish granting organization, Wish Upon a Wedding fully intends to “produce weddings and civil union ceremonies at destinations across the United States for individuals facing terminal illness.” If that doesn’t have *tear* written all over it, I don’t know what does.
After perusing through their Web site, I came across something that moved me. Because I consider myself an eternal, hope-FULL romantic, I’m always looking for optimistic news, which seems to be few and far between these days. Hence why fairytale-come-true stories are always topping my list. As a self proclaimed cheerleader of love, there’s nothing that warms my heart more than seeing just how far a little love can be spread.
By celebrating the courage and spirit of these couples, it is our hope that others facing similar situations will find hope, strength, and the promise of eternal love. (wishuponawedding.org)
This is truly inspirational, which is why I encourage you all to read Florence’s story – Wish Upon a Wedding’s first recipient winner and see what you can do to help! Speaking from experience, proclaiming my love to my Mister - in front of all our family and friends – has hands down been the most beautiful moment of my life. So, anyone or organization whose soul intention is built around helping others, especially those as deserving as Florence, achieve this goal are gold star worthy in my book and merit all the help they can get!
So thank you, Wish Upon a Wedding, for bringing the *Bibbidi, the *Bobbidi and the *Boo to those who merit it most! And cheers to everyone who’ll get their “happily ever after…”
