Make a Wish Gifts
Your holidays will sparkle even brighter when you give
a gift that helps make children’s wishes come true.
This year, Things Remembered offers a collectible holiday
ornament, musical snow globe and star keepsake box --
all benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

in 1998 when one critically ill child, Elysia, wished

They are available at Things Remembered stores nationwide
and online at www.thingsremembered.com.
