You can change your life and someone else’s forever, simply by volunteering.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is looking for volunteers to help them grant wishes.

The average cost to grant a wish is about $8,900, but thanks to volunteers, a child’s wish is granted every 34 minutes.

Arlo started having 60 to 90 seizures a day when he was just two and a half years old.

He had an abnormal blood vessel the size of a raspberry seeping blood into his brain.

Arlo underwent two brain surgeries back to back, and was granted a trip to Disney World via Make-A-Wish.

There are plenty of different volunteer opportunities within Make-A-Wish, from monetary donations to fundraising, special events, and even language translating.

If you’re interested in helping, Make-A-Wish is holding a volunteer training meeting this Thursday, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

That meeting will be held at Aloft Corpus Christi, located at 5117 Embassy Dr.
