Wish of a Lifetime
Jeremy Bloom founded The Wish of a Lifetime Foundation in honor of his 83-year-old grandmother, who remains a constant source of inspiration to him. WOL is built on the premise that senior citizens should be respected, honored and aided in society. They have given a lifetime of service, wisdom, and love to their communities and families. This foundation makes lifelong dreams come true for seniors; by granting these lifelong wishes, WOL is able spread inspirational stories of hope.
WOL’s core program, the “Wish of A Lifetime Program” makes wishes come true for senior citizens. Most elderly men and women have something in their life they have always wanted to do or see, but for many different reasons they are often not able to live out these dreams. The WOL foundation wish fulfillment program aims to change that, creating opportunities to ensure each of these very special wishes can come true.
