Granting wishes is a very simple way of saying that you give sick kids and families the opportunity to share joy, make memories and forget about the struggle, even if for a moment. Sam’s granted wish gave him and our family freedom to dream, permission to pause, and hopeful anticipation of good things to come. And this extends beyond the beautiful vacation you granted us. It’s a new perspective on life. Thank you, Ingrid, Nancy and Rainbow Connection family, for reminding us how to dream, that we need to pause, even when everything is chaotic, and that when we trust God, we can live a life full of hopeful anticipation. We love The Rainbow Connection and are forever grateful for the love and kindness you showered upon our family. God’s peace and blessings to you all!

The Rainbow Connection provided my son, Zack, with a very simple wish – to spend some time with our exchange student from last year. It just so happens that our exchange student lives in Denmark!

The Rainbow Connection sent us to Copenhagen and Berlin for what became the true trip of a lifetime for our family of four – 6 days in two very exciting European capitals. Of all the amazing experiences we had each day, Zack said his favorite part of the whole trip was just hanging out with Chris and meeting his family for the first time.

Thank you to Ingrid and The Rainbow Connection for giving us the opportunity to spend time together as a family and celebrate life. We are eternally grateful for this wish trip!

I really can’t say enough about Rainbow connection…words can not express how truly greatful and appreciative we are for every person and organization involved with the Rainbow Connection! They made not only my daughter’s dream come true, but my whole family’s dream came true! Being giving a trip of a lifetime to Disney for a week for a family of 8! I’m not sure we could have ever afforded to do it on our own…definitely not with ALL the first class treament! I thank God for the Rainbow Connection and pray they are able to continue to bless other MI families for years to come!! Thank you for ALL the FOREVER memories that were created for my entire family!! It felt so good for us all to forget about our troubles and just have fun!! God bless you ALL!!

This wonderful organization granted our daughter her wish trip in 2008, a trip to Disney to be a Princess among Princesses. Just 10 short months later she lost her battle with cancer and was called home to heaven. I don’t think we fully appreciated the Rainbow Connections gift at the time but in the years that have followed we have. The memories that were created during that trip, the most wonderful time we had ever spent as a family, are absolutely priceless and bring both smiles to our faces and tears to our eyes. We will never be able to adequately thank the Rainbow Connection for that gift, the gift of dreams coming true!
