One of the things that makes Granted unique is that we continue to serve our children and families long after the Wish is complete through our Beyond The Wish benefit program. This is a comprehensive lineup of programs and services that evolves with the needs of our families.
Over the past year, we have received numerous requests that highlighted a gap in service for a whole demographic of people who need our collective love and support. There are many babies who are likely not going to reach the minimum age of three years old to receive a Wish.
We have added Wish Babies as a new category, and will welcome these families into our Granted family so that they can receive the support they need, and may benefit from our other programming. As these children near three years old, we will begin our normal approval processes for a Wish.
Our very first Wish Baby is one year old Ryder.
