Founded in 1988 by Donald and Susan Sutherland in Tempe, AZ, Cold Stone Creamery uses the highest quality ingredients, it’s ice cream and yogurts are made fresh every day, and their signature touch, preparing your creation on a frozen granite stone.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation is currently celebrating it’s 30th anniversary. Begun in Phoenix, AZ in 1980, the organization is the number one wish granting non-profit organization. Over 200,000 children have had their wishes granted with last year having the highest number of wishes ever: 13,471. A wish is granted approximately every 40 seconds and the average cost of a wish is $7,205 of which 75% goes towards the actual wish.
To qualify for the Make-A-Wish Foundation children must be between the ages of 2 1/2 and 18 years of age, have a life-threatening medical condition that can be certified by a medical professional, and not have received a wish from any other organization. Operating 64 offices in the U.S. and U.S. territories, the foundation benefits from the time and talent of over 25,000 volunteers and donations from the public. The emphasis is always on the child’s life and never on the disease.
