Do you pour concrete? Can you help out our friends at Make-A-Wish?

The dedicated people at Make-A-Wish need some help with the finishing touches on a project for a child.

I've made friends with the great people at Make-A-Wish here in Seattle, and I told them if they ever need help with a particular project, give me a shout and I'll try to tap the power of the radio audience to lend a hand. A lot of the wishes they try to turn into reality require some clever MacGyver-ing and resourcefulness, which is one of the things I love about what they do. So . . . . here's the message I got the other day:

We need help putting the finishing touches on one of our wishes, and I’m wondering if you can help us spread the word. Here’s the situation:

Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington, the local organization that creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses, needs help putting the finishing touches on a wish for a local child. We are nearly finished completing the wish of a child in Bremerton, who wished to have a hot tub. We need a volunteer to help pour concrete and install a lift so that the wish child can access the new hot tub. If you can help, please contact the local Make-A-Wish office at

So, would you be willing to help spread the word with some of your channels? The wish is all ready to go except the lift—it’s literally the last piece until his wish is completed.

If you think you can help with this, either as an individual or a contractor or a company , PLEASE email Jessica Matthews  ( or call her directly at 206.588.8953.

Thanks in advance for your help!
