July 2, 2012 - PRLog -- July 2, 2012 – Birmingham, AL -- Make-A-Wish Georgia and Alabama is looking for wish-granting volunteers in the Birmingham, AL area.

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.  There are nearly 200 children waiting for their wishes to be granted in Alabama alone, and volunteers are needed to create, design, implement and raise funds and awareness for these wishes.  

Make-A-Wish is specifically looking for new volunteers in Birmingham, Alabama and surrounding areas to help local children who are waiting for their most heartfelt wish to be granted. Wish granters work in teams of two or three to meet with the wish child, help the child determine his or her wish, then help plan for and fulfill the wish.  

The following g information session and volunteer training opportunities are fast approaching, so individuals are encouraged to register as soon as possible.  At the trainings, interested parties will learn about Make-A-Wish® and how the organization grants wishes. Once trained, volunteers have the opportunity to make a special wish, such as a trip to Disney World, a shopping spree or an opportunity to become a police officer come true.  Wish-granting volunteers must be 21 years of age or older and complete a background check prior to volunteering.
