Wireless Zone and Wireless Zone Gives presented a generous grant of $5,000 to Sunshine Foundation to help answer the dream of a local child. Thomas Goodema, with Down syndrome, of Croydon, will soon have his Magical Dream answered for a family trip to Central Florida to visit Walt Disney World.

“Thomas loves to hug and laugh, and wants to meet all the characters and ride the rides at the Magic Kingdom,” said Thomas’ mom.

Kate Sample, Sunshine Foundation president, said, “So grateful to Wireless Zone in Feasterville, PA, including Nathan, Matthew, Randdie and Alex for presenting Sunshine Foundation with this generous donation from Wireless Zone Gives to help us make Thomas’ dream come true.”

Each year, Wireless Zone franchisees and employers nominate a local charity for a Wireless Zone Gives grant.

Sunshine Foundation answers dreams to children with lifelong, severe, chronic illnesses and conditions, such as spina bifida, cerebral palsy, level 3 severe autism, Down syndrome, hydrocephalus, severe epilepsy, Sickle Cell Disease, blindness, deafness and trauma from abuse.

To make these dreams a reality for children who may be turned away from other wish-granting organizations that require a life-threatening or critical diagnosis, Sunshine Foundation relies on the generosity of individuals, organizations and corporations.

The most common request is a Magical Dream to visit Legoland Florida, Universal Studios, Disney World and SeaWorld while choosing to stay at the Sunshine Foundation Dream Village near Disney. Sunshine Foundation also answers Special Dreams: shopping sprees, computers and iPads, outdoor playsets, above-ground swimming pools, family trips, cruises, adaptive tricycles and other special needs equipment, plus many more.

Since 1976, Sunshine Foundation has spread sunshine into the lives of more than 42,500 children throughout the United States. It is a Top-Rated Wish-Granting Organization in America, with a perfect 100 percent score on Charity Navigator and “A”-Rated on CharityWatch.
