Make a Wish wish

We have received a lovely letter from the Make a Wsih foundation in response to our fundraising last year that culminated with the Charity Ball.

As you can see from the attached we have been able to make a real difference to a little boy's life, it certainly made me feel a bit emotional!

It is only through the fantastic generosity of MINI2 members, event organisers and sponsors that we are able to acheive such things

So on behalf of all the organisers, and I'm sure Mikey too,

THANK YOU

and we hope to see you all at the 2009 Ball

Thanks to everyone who helped in any way towards raising that total and making a real difference, so nice to hear a "real life" personal story of how money raised has made a genuine difference to an individual and their family.

Great job! Your New England counterparts just delivered 1000 toys and $2500 to Make-A-Wish this past Sunday. It's a very worthy cause indeed!

The letter made me cry. How wonderful to know what your money has done and how it has helped someone who really needed help. Thank you all!
I was so happy to be involved with such a giving community and I really hope that we can all carry on supporting charitable causes every year.
