Meet Julia—Wish Recipient to Wish Benefactor
Your donated miles help send people like Julia on their wish trips. 16-year-old Julia has been fighting a connective tissue disorder. Her wish was to go to Mo’orea to stay in an overwater bungalow with her twin sister, Jamie, and their parents. Julia said, “It let us break away from reality. We weren’t always worried about doctors’ appointments.”
What’s even more amazing is that when Julia returned home from her wish, she wanted to pay it forward and raise money to send other kids on wishes. Julia and her sister set a goal of $5,000 and ended up raising over $19,000—an amount that funds approximately two whole wishes!
