For some people, going to work each day is about collecting a paycheck, for others, it’s about making a difference. Greenridge Realty does more than find ideal homes for people of the community, they work closely with the Make-A-Wish Michigan to make dreams come true for a number of local children. Find out more about what they have done for over 100 children in the West Michigan area…
All over the world, children are diagnosed with life-threatening diseases. The Make-A-Wish Foundation feels that giving them an opportunity to see their dreams come true can help them to feel stronger and more courageous, giving them hope and spirit in the fight against their illness. Many believe this optimism can be a turning point, guiding children back to health.
Make-A-Wish started in 1980, granting the wishes of a young boy who was suffering from leukemia who longed to be a police officer and ‘fight the bad guys’. Since then they have been helping children by sending them to exotic locations, taking them to unforgettable events and uniting them with their idols. They work with tens of thousands of volunteers, donors, and supporters and are able to grant a wish every 34 minutes.
Greenridge Realty was founded in 1980. The Greenridge Dream Team Foundation was founded in 1999. Most of their funds are raised through our agents and staff who contribute a portion of every commission or paycheck to the foundation. Their fundraising events help to grant a few additional wishes a year and bring awareness to the cause. More recently, they granted their 120th wish, sending a little girl to Disney World fully decked out in Toy Story cowgirl fashion. See the Facebook post below:
