When our wish granters interviewed Edwin, they could see how excited he was about Make-A-Wish®. He even told them that it was “too good to be true.” As they spoke more throughout the visit, they learned that due to his illness and other circumstances, Edwin had never had a true opportunity to go and shop freely for what he really wanted and needed. It was clear that Edwin’s heartfelt wish would be to have a shopping spree.
Before he knew it, his special day had arrived. He was shocked to find that a limousine was there to pick him and his family up. “I didn’t expect it at all,” Edwin said.
A lover of all electronics, Edwin had the pleasure of shopping at Best Buy for a plethora of cool gadgets. The friendly staff and volunteers did their best to help Edwin pick out potential purchases and find some good deals.
“The wish experience impacted me because I was healthy enough to go and enjoy myself. I would not change a thing about my day,” Edwin said.
