Our Special Relationship with the Make-A-Wish Foundation®
Things Remembered and Make-A-Wish Foundation?: Creating Memories, One Wish at a Time Our commitment to the Make-A-Wish Foundation began in 1997 with one child's simple wish. Elysia wanted to give her loved ones personalized gifts so they would always remember her. What sprang from her wish has grown into an annual program that has raised more than $5.7 million, assisting the Make-A-Wish Foundation grant more than 740 wishes. To honor Elysia's memory, Things Remembered continues to donate a portion of the proceeds of Make-A-Wish® gift sales to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
We extend our sincerest appreciation to the thousands of customers who have purchased our beautiful Make-A-Wish keepsakes over the past years, or made a cash donation, to help make the contributions possible - and children's wishes come true.
