PHILLIPS WISH

Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

 

The Phillip's Wish Blanket Drive is in full swing and we are now collecting donations for sleeping bags, coats, gloves, socks and toiletries. December 15th will be our 8th annual Blanket Drive. This year our goal is to collect 500 sleeping bags but we can't do it without the help of generous supporters. If you would like to be a part of Phillip's Wish, please donate to our cause. Thank you in advance for helping make a difference.

About Phillip's Wish -  Phillip's Wish is a non-profit organization that was founded by a little boy who saw a need in the world and decided to do something about it. As a result of his father's mental illness, Phillip and his mom, Cyndi Bunch, were introduced to a world that broke their hearts. After searching the streets of Fort Worth looking for Phillip, SR. they were overwhelmed by how many homeless people they saw.

Later that evening as Phillip was being tucked into bed by his Mom, he expressed his concerns regarding his daddy. Was he safe? Was he happy? Would they ever see each other again? Then he asked a question that was the catalyst to the founding of Phillip's Wish.

"Mommy," he said. "Are you warm?"

"Yes, baby, I'm warm."

"Is Daddy warm?" he asked.

 


Phillip's Wish is a non-profit organization that was founded by a little boy who saw a need in the world and decided to do something about it.

 

And then the then 7-year-old son asked about everyone else - the people on the street, in the shelters, the people he had seen when they were driving around looking for his Dad. His mom told him the truth: "No, not everyone is warm."

They both knew what we they had to do. They would collect blankets. Hundreds of them. Maybe thousands. And give them to every homeless person they found. The first year 200 blankets were collected, by the fourth year, over 20,000 blankets were collected along with hundreds of hats, scarves, gloves, sleeping bags, toiletries and thousands of toys. Thanks to the help and support of others, Phillip's Wish - that no one would be cold or uncared for- can become a reality. Please consider being a part of Phillip's Wish and experience firsthand the words of Winston Churchill, "You make a living by what you get, but you make a life by what you give."
