Completed: 19. Volunteer for Make-a-Wish Foundation
This goal has taken a while to complete. The process is extensive, for good reason, and there were a few administrative hiccups along the way, but I’ve gotten background checks, had interviews, taken online trainings, completed my in-person five-hour training and now can be assigned to a case.
Caveat: my inconsistent last names were flagged on my background check, so I have to wait until that gets cleared, but otherwise, I’m ready to grant some wishes for kids dealing with life-threatening medical conditions with the Mid-Atlantic Chapter.
