Children's Wish Foundation International

I got a call yesterday from Jim Walsh, an IAFF brother in Scranton Pennsylvania. Jim asked if I could be at the Bonsack Walmart for a check presentation. Walmart donated $1000 to the Children's Wish Foundation International. This morning I ran up to Walmart for the presentation. Unfortunately, neither the paper or television station which said they would be there showed up. Therefore, I am doing the news today.

Children's Wish Foundation International is committed to bringing joy and happiness to seriously ill children throughout the world and this dedication has created special experiences for children around the globe. To date, Children's Wish Foundation International has touched the lives of children in 32 countries, providing a lifetime of memories for them and their family.
Jim Walsh's son received a wish from this organization several years ago. Jim has been involved with CWFI ever since.

For what reason were you there? Are you getting your wish granted? Are you going to be a firefighter one day?

Thanks to Walmart and the Fire Department for being there for us. It is a shame that newspapers only want to print controversy and don't show up to print news worthy articles.
