Gio, 6, nervous system disorder, I wish to go to Morgan’s Wonderland

Although Gio’s blindness has made many aspects of his life challenging, he finds great joy in interacting with the world through the sense of touch. The feeling he loves most is that of playing in water. It is not easy for 6-year-old Gio to visit a waterpark, though, as not many are fully wheelchair accessible. Make-A-Wish® granted Gio’s wish to go to Morgan’s Wonderland, an ultra-accessible theme park in San Antonio. It was an opportunity for him “to feel special, to know it was his day,” said Gio’s mom, Stephanie.

At Morgan’s Wonderland, Gio spent two days in pure bliss. Stephanie pushed him through the splash park for hours. He could even crawl on the squishy floors and play with the jumping water for as long as he wished. “His sister would hold him, and they would go down the water slides together,” Stephanie said. “He had an extra big smile on his face for two days. It was great to see. He was just so happy.’”

Gio’s wish brought joy to the rest of his family, too. “Sometimes it’s hard to take him out,” Stephanie said. “When you’re in an environment with more people like you, you feel really at home. It was the trip of a lifetime. We’re all going to remember it forever.”

How Make-A-Wish Giving Good Cards Make a Difference

When you buy this Giving Good Card, GiftCards.com donates 3% of the purchase to Make-A-Wish. That 3% comes out of our pocket, not yours, and goes directly to the organization that has brought hope and healing to half a million children with critical illnesses worldwide.

Think your 3% can’t make a difference?

Thanks to donations big and small, Make-A-Wish has collectively granted nearly 500,000 wishes worldwide, making it the world’s largest wish-granting organization.

So with that money you’re already planning to spend on gift cards, at no additional cost to you, a donation is made that helps Make-A-Wish grant life-changing wishes for children going through so much.

Wishes granted are more than just singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved—wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage needed to go through with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. Others may realize what they can offer the world through their volunteer work, or through monetary donations.

Gift Card Girlfriend Video Transcript

I’m Shelley Hunter, Gift Card Girlfriend. I’m really excited to tell you about the Giving Good Gift Card that benefits Make-A-Wish.

First let me tell you how the card works. Each Giving Good Gift Card is usable at a curated set of stores and restaurants listed on the card which means the recipient has a choice of how to use each card. And when you purchase a Giving Good Card, 3% of the value loaded onto the card will be donated to the charity identified.

There’s no activation fee or expiration, and you don’t pay extra to offer that flexibility to the recipient, or to make the donation.

This is just a great way to do more with the money you already intend to spend on gift cards.

And if you’re not familiar with this charity, Make-A-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. As the world’s leading children’s wish granting organization, Make-A-Wish serves every community in the US and 50 countries worldwide.

You can learn more on wish.org.

Again, I’m Shelley Hunter, your consumer guide to gift cards.

As you think about the gift cards you plan to give this holiday season, consider a Giving Good Gift Card where the recipient has a choice. You don’t have to pay extra for it and 3% of the load value goes to a worthy cause.
