Note: I received a package of Birthday-themed ice cream treats so that my family could celebrate Wells’ 100th birthday, but no monetary compensation was received. All opinions are my own.
This year, Well Enterprises, the makers of Blue Bunny ice cream, is celebrating its 100th birthday!
In addition to adding new ice cream flavors and exciting new frozen treats, to celebrate this milestone, Blue Bunny has kicked off the 100 Years, 100 Wishes program.
What is 100 Years, 100 Wishes?
100 Year, 100 Wishes is an alliance between Well Enterprises and Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant 100 wishes to 100 kids with life-threatening medical conditions.
In addition to the wish-granting, Wells is asking customers to join them in signing a Wish Card with well-wishes and notes of encouragement for the kids in the program. The Wish Card will be delivered to each child in the program on October 24, 2013 – Wells’ 100th birthday.
Kajj and Sarah’s Wishes
The very first wish granted as part of the 100 Years, 100 Wishes program was 4 year old Kajj’s wish to be a “cop officer”. Interestingly, Kajj’s wish is reminiscent of the first wish ever granted by Make-A-Wish which was to be a police officer. Kajj was diagnosed with a life-threatening tumor (Wilm’s Tumor) and his wish story can be found at bluebunny.com/wishes/wish-details/kajj.
Another one of the wishes already granted was for a 5 year old girl named Sarah, in the Mid-Atlantic Chapter that serves Delaware, DC, Maryland and the Northern Virginia area (my area!). Sarah, who suffers from a life-threatening neurological disorder, had a wish to have a mobility tracking system in her home – a wish that would give her independence and pride.
