This month, we're excited to announce our new cause partner, Little Wish Foundation.
The Little Wish Foundation brings hope, comfort and joy to kids fighting cancer. If you'd like your Charmed by a Cause purchase to support Little Wish's mission, just select Little Wish from our list of cause partners at checkout.
The organization is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that was started by Liz Niemiec, at age 17, in the memory of Max Olson. At age one, Max was adopted from Russia and was brought to the Olson’s loving home. At age four, Max was diagnosed with Wilm’s Tumor, a rare kidney cancer, In December of 2007. Unfortunately, his two-and-a-half-year battle ended. His unbelievable courage and strength is the inspiration behind Little Wish Foundation.
Max’s little wish was to have a pet dog, which his parents granted and he so excitedly named “Chewy,” after his favorite Star Wars character. Liz saw how happy this gift made him so she decided she wanted to make “little wishes” come true for other children suffering from cancer to bring them some happiness.
This idea led to the creation of Little Wish Foundation. “Little wishes” granted have given children with cancer hope, happiness and sometimes a reason to get through the day.
A little wish is much more than a distraction for a child battling cancer, but each wish granted stands as a testament to being there to help “Max’s friends,” as he was well-known for making many friends amongst other kids, nurses and doctors in the hospitals while receiving his treatments.
Live Life to the MAX!”
