Hi friends! :D
To keep it short and sweet, our birthday wish this year is to raise $1,000 for Make-A-Wish International. Would you help us fulfill our wish? :)
As we chatted about what we want for our birthday, I came across this video on the left, and it really really touched me...I see the difference they make for the children, and I wish I can contribute to it.
Looking back, I am very blessed with what I have. So this year, as much as I love celebrating my birthday for me and getting surprise gifts, I want to "donate" my birthday to charity and having the chance to give back.
Basically, instead of having parties with gifts, we are asking if you can help us fulfill this wish by donating $22 or as much (or as little) as you want to Make-A-Wish! When you click DONATE, your money will directly go to the foundation.
And I know, it is shameless to ask for gifts, but if not for us,we believe it is wonderful to see how much difference we can make for the children as a group. And $22 is probably less than a birthday meal + graduation gift x2 (especially if you are a friend of both Nora’s and mine ;))
It's 22 days from our 22nd birthday. It is right before we graduate from college. And it may possibly be our last birthday in Seattle/New York...
So would you guys help us fulfill our birthday wish? :)
This will really be the best birthday gift ever. It will mean the whole world to us seeing the love from all our friends.
Thank you guys, I know together we can do it. (: <3
Make A Wish for the children,
Make A Wish for us.

*just realized that the minimum donation is $10 on this site. If that's a problem to you, let us know. (:
