Alexis Moffett has been a volunteer with us for over 3 years. She serves at events, fundraisers, and outreach activities. She even started as an intern! As a Wish Granter, she not only brings so many bright smiles to the faces of kids, but she experiences the happiness herself. As she describes her experience: "Each time I grant a wish or volunteer at an event, I come home grinning with joy."
Alexis's inspiration comes from her brother, Tyler, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2009. He wished to go on a safari, so Make-A-Wish sent him and his family to South Africa! The experience was so touching and unforgettable that she wanted to give back to the organization by becoming a volunteer. Alexis wants to help others during their hardest times just as Make-A-Wish did for her and her family.
Alexis's favorite wish memory was her first shopping spree when she went with a little boy to Tilly's Surf and Skate shop. Walking into lines of clapping employees, the little boy's face lit up. She could tell he felt so special.
If she were given a wish at 5-years-old, Alexis would have wished to become a Walt Disney princess.
