Natty's Wish

This NPO was brought to my attention by a friend of mine.
"One of Natalie's greatest wishes was to form a non-profit organization to help other young adults diagnosed between the ages of 18-25 to have a trip with their families. As many of you know, when you receive devastating news such as cancer or death, you just want to run away and forget about real life for a minute and have the chance to make some memories. Make A Wish had to draw a line and that line is 18 years old. Natalie wanted to give the same experience to other young adults, and so "Natty's Wish" was born. 
My son, Scott, has spent hours and hours and hours getting through all the legal stuff to get "Natty's Wish" up and running. We are so excited to announce our very first fund raising effort.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Make a Wish Foundation, they grant wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions but their age limit is 18. However, Natty's Wish would like to grant wishes to adolescents from ages 18-25. So they have teamed up with the Chili's in Utah in order to raise funds.
On MARCH 7, we have a give back day at all the CHILI'S in UTAH. That means if you take one of the coupons to a Chili's on that day, they will attach it to your bill and then 10% of whatever you spend will come to "Natty's Wish". I think you will be able to print them off. Please print some and pass them out to everyone you know. This will be a great way to start growing "Natty's Wish" so we can help other young adults and their families!"
 I hope all of us in Utah can support this wonderful cause and raise money for "Natty's Wish".
