Are you feeling like you want to make a difference during this global crisis? You can with Make-A-Wish Wisconsin.

I talked with Forrest Doolen of Make-A-Wish Wisconsin about their needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to the Coronavirus, Make-A-Wish Wisconsin has felt the financial impact of this crisis. They've had to put over 90 wishes on hold and they have more than 420 wishes in progress. They are asking the community to find it in their hearts to help grant wishes for the kids of Wisconsin through donations during this difficult time.

You can also show your support on social with a video or a picture using #WishesareWaiting to offer hope to the children who are waiting for their wishes to be granted.
