Taylor’s wish came true one day when she was told that she would visit the Eiffel Tower and learn how to make and eat croissants in Paris, France. She was able to see her dream come to reality, when she attended a baking class with Chef Didier in Paris to learn all of the tricks of the trade to baking great bread and fabulous flakey croissants. She was even able to see her beloved Eiffel Tower, up close!
According to Taylor’s mom, Na-Tasha, “Taylor could not have been happier!” Her mom explained to us how excited Taylor was when she reached the Eiffel Tower. “Taylor kept repeating phrases like ‘I can’t believe I’m really here’ and ‘I’m INSIDE the Eiffel Tower and touching it!’” Na-Tasha also told us that, “The smiles on Taylor’s face throughout the experience were priceless and have created memories that will last her and our family a lifetime.”
Taylor and her mom will be joining us this year again for our Delaware Walk for Wishes as Team Taylor. Team Taylor participated last year, and according to Na-Tasha, “will continue to for subsequent years!” Team Taylor will be joined by family and friends who have witnessed firsthand the impact of receiving a wish. They are excited to provide that same joy to more children in the region. “As the parent of a Wish recipient, it’s very important for our family to assist in making wishes a reality for other children,” says Na-Tasha.
Team Taylor has some great ideas to help kick off your fundraising for your Walk for Wishes teams! Some of their ideas include: holding a candy booth with donations accepted, a coin drive, work lunches with donations accepted, sharing their Walk for Wishes donation link with family and friends, and holding school and business fundraisers.
