BENEFITING: Wish of a Lifetime
Joy, memories, family...These words often come to mind as we enter the holiday season, yet for many seniors, the holidays can become a time of loneliness.
At a time of year when the joy of being with loved ones is ever present, many seniors express feeling lonely and isolated, and 10.5 million seniors live alone*.
Reconnecting with loved ones creates the connection that many seniors live without. Since 2008, we have reconnected over 150 seniors to their friends and family. Donate now to help us reconnect even more.

Contributions from the campaign will be used to fund Wishes in the Wish of a Lifetime's Reconnecting Loved Ones Wish category. Over 150 Wishes granted by Wish of a Lifetime (WOL) have been focused on reconnecting a Wish Recipient to their family and friends. WOL has found that staying connected with family and friends contributes to greater emotional and physical health for aging Americans.
