"Hi everyone! Being involved in the horse industry and with Wishing Star, many of you approach me with questions about Wishing Star, wishes and our children. Our wish kids are referred to us from lots of places and people. Neighbors, teachers, physicians, family, nurses, and friends, all have referred children with life threatening illnesses to Wishing Star. Often the child's family knows the referral, but we get anonymous referrals too. When a child is referred, Wishing Star contacts the family to see if they are interested in a wish. In sharing - only a few - of these "wishes," keep in mind that those of you who participate at this year's Gallop as a spectator, sponsor, booth exhibitor, stallion owner or committee member will help to make these wishes a reality. Be very proud of yourselves!"

HOW CAN YOU HELP IN WISHING STARS MISSION?
That is a question we are asked by many people and there are a number of ways. One is financially. It is a constant battle to raise the money to get the Wishes done as quickly as possible. Another is to become a Wishing Star volunteer. Give some of your time. We have a number of people who volunteer through our office in Spokane and we can always use more. We also have chapters made up of volunteers in a number of communities where extra help is always needed. Those chapters serve the following areas: 1. Lewiston, ID./Clarkston, WA. 2. Moscow, ID./Pullman, WA. 3. Magic Valley/Twin Falls, ID. 4. Weiser/Payette, ID. 5. Coeur d'Alene, ID. 6. Boise/Treasure Valley, ID. 7. Tri-Cities, WA. 8. Yakima, WA. 9. Wenatchee, WA. 10. Sandpoint, ID. If you are interested in volunteering in one of these areas or need more information, call us at 509-744-3411.
Give the greatest gift, help a child's dream come true.
