Among the many other charities that Munear Kouzbari sponsors and works with, he is active with the Make a Wish Foundation. Make A Wish America offers amazing opportunities to children diagnosed with critical illnesses. These are children who dream of being typical children and experiencing opportunities that would not be possible without assistance. In the United States, a wish is granted every 34 minutes, helping children to keep up their spirits and their strength in times of adversity.
Here are a few recent examples of how the Make a Wish Foundation and people like Munear Kouzbari make a difference. Six-year-old Gio is blind and dreamed of visiting a water park. Make a Wish helped him to go to Morgan’s Wonderland for two days where he could splash in the park for hours and feel like all the other kids. Another child, Sawyer, who has leukemia decided he wanted a chicken coup. Sawyer’s chicken coup today houses 17 full-sized birds and Sawyer calls it a “Chicken City.”
Finally, Emmett wanted to go to Legoland despite the cancer diagnosis that he was fighting. JetBlue flew Emmett and his family to Legoland in Florida and announced while he was on board that they had a special boy on his way to Legoland. As Emmett’s mom said, “The trip was amazing. He loved everything about his wish.”
These are just three examples of the ways that the Make a Wish Foundation has transformed the lives of sick children and continues to do so with the assistance of people like Munear Ashton Kouzbari.
