Wish Granter, Wish Jumper, Danielle Sanzone
Several skydivers for Wish Jump 2012 are also Make-A-Wish Northeast New York staff and volunteers. How cool is that – jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, free falling through the air 1000 feet every 6 seconds at a speed of about 120 mph – now that’s dedication!
Meet Wish Granter, Wish Jumper, Danielle Sanzone…
Q. How many years have you been a volunteer Wish Granter? A. Six years.
Q. How many wishes have you granted? A. Ten.
Q. What’s your most memorable wish granting experience? A. My most memorable experience was escorting a young boy, who had already had multiple surgeries all over his body, to the airport for his wish to stay at the Nickelodeon Hotel in Orlando, Florida. The wheelchair-bound boy was a huge Spiderman fan, so my brother volunteered to wear a Spiderman suit to the airport. It was quite a site seeing Spidey going through airport security with the boy and his family, and then I got the biggest hug from him right before he got on the plane!
Q. What are some of the other wishes you’ve granted? A. A trip to London, a Christmas shopping spree in the Capital District, a trip to Hawaii, a playground, and a room makeover.
Wishes like Danielle’s come true because of the generosity of Make-A-Wish donors. If you’d like to make a donatation on behalf of Danielle and help her reach her fundraising goal of $750, CLICK HERE.
