Give Hope to Ohio Children on Your Tax Return
A wish is powerful medicine. We’ve known anecdotally about the power of a wish and now a first-of-its-kind study is opening the door to possibilities of medical and financial benefits. The study found children who received a wish were hospitalized less in the first year following their wish being granted.
Every year, hundreds of children battling critical illnesses in Ohio are granted their heartfelt wish. But, for every we grant, another child is waiting to experience the transformational power of a wish. This tax season, you can help close the “wish gap.”
