#ForWishes: Ashley Proffitt

Ashley Proffitt
I knew I was #ForWishes when I received the generosity of Make-A-Wish Georgia.

Since then, I have always had a special place in my heart for this organization and appreciate an organization dedicated to bring smiles to kids who may feel like there is not much to smile about. 

When I contacted my wish granter about my idea to go to the 2012 Olympics in London, I had little hopes that it would actually happen. It seemed too big. Why would anyone want to help me go to the Olympics? 

When my wish granter told me it was approved, I was in shock! My family and I got to go to London for three days and go to two of my favorite events. We got to have dinner at Kensington palace with the caterer from the royal wedding! I felt so special that trip

Now, as an wish granting volunteer myself, I get to help kids experience that same excitement. That special feeling doesn't stop when you become a volunteer.

My name is Ashley Proffitt and I am #ForWishes.
