Ripple to River

100% of donations go to Make-A-WishⓇ Maine This month

A long time ago, the Royal River was an important part of life here in our neck of the woods, powering mills and allowing a community to grow and flourish. Nowadays, we see what the river helped to create. We believe that ordinary people can come together to make a big difference, too, in helping to create a community that continues that growth.

Our “Ripple to River” program highlights important organizations in our community that could use your help.

Even a small, individual act of kindness can “ripple out” into something significant for kids that are facing challenges nobody ever wants to face. One person’s donation, no matter how small, can combine with others to bring comfort and positive change to a family facing unimaginable challenges after their child has been diagnosed with a critical illness. Ripple to River will highlight one Maine-based organization each month that focuses on supporting these children.

“We are doing well,
now we want to do good.”
– Scott Libby, Owner

Make-A-Wish MaineⓇ

A wish begins with hope and hope begins with you!

Make-A-WishⓇ creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Since 1992, we have granted nearly 1,750 wishes. This coming year, the organization expects to grant the greatest wish of over 75 seriously ill Maine children, which is an average of one wish every five days. All money raised in Maine stays in Maine. All wish expenses are fully covered by Make-A-WishⓇ. Make-A-WishⓇ Maine is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, and all contributions are tax-deductible. The Maine chapter has over 200 volunteers statewide and a staff of eight.

Wishes replace a child’s fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope. Wishes give children renewed energy and strength, bring families closer together and unite communities.

Here are ways that YOU can help grant the wish of a critically ill child in Maine:
