A moving “Thanksgiving Night” from Make-A-Wish Greece

A moving “Thanksgiving Night” from Make-A-Wish Greece

It’s not just one night. It’s a night of gratitude.
ATHENS (February 26) – The annual “Thanksgiving Night” of Make-A-Wish (Make-A-Wish of Greece) was held at the Theater of the Athens College on Tuesday, February 25.
The “Thanksgiving Night” is the annual report of the Organization’s work, as well as the expression of the deep gratitude of Make-A-Wish Greece to volunteers, donors, company representatives, friends and supporters.
During the night and through various events, we heard a mother worrying about her daughter’s sudden illness and her development, a teenager telling us her personal story and how she dealt with her illness, as well as a father telling us the difficult moments he went through. In a highly emotional atmosphere, the Organization thanked its supporters, thanks to whom it managed to fulfill 292 wishes in 2019, of which 28 were wishes of children from Make-A-Wish of other countries. With the support and love of his friends, the Organization last year, and every 30 hours, fulfilled a unique wish and a child somewhere near us was drawing strength, gaining his lost childhood, the one who lost violently due to his illness.
President Yvette Kosmetatou stressed: “We are grateful that even more children have blessed us with their trust and we have managed to give them the strength they needed to continue their difficult struggle or to start all over again, a new life, while the Ambassador of the Organization, Faye Skorda, said characteristically,” Every time I am moved by the slightest story that I will hear, but the Night that we thank our “friends”, is so special that it is difficult to hold back your tears! Thank you very much everyone who is with us! I am close to Make-A-Wish Greece essentially and with all my soul. I am part of the project and I support it at every opportunity. ”
The director of Make-A-Wish Greece, Ms. Sandra Zafeirakopoulou, and coordinator of the evening, said “We are proud to have managed to increase the number of wishes fulfilled, as well as the requests we received last year.”
We thank Mariza Papadimitriou for directing, Georgia Avaskandira for editing the event of the night, as well as Ioulita Mosaidou and the little Theodora and Vivian for her performance on stage.
