Meet Danielle Gletow. Just an ordinary woman from New Jersey who is doing extraordinary things. Danielle and her husband, Joe, have a deep love for children in need. So, they launched One Simple Wish, a non-profit organization that grants wishes to children in foster care.

Danielle said granting wishes are way more fulfilling than giving things to children—it’s letting them know there are people who care, people who want to help them succeed. The process is simple—thus the name of the organization—wishes are registered on the website, and anyone who wants to give grants the wish with a simple click.

Read the full news story here, but please do more than that! Go to One Simple Wish and find a wish that you can help come true. Then share, Share, SHARE! Let’s get wishes granted for all of America’s foster children!
