Welcome to Natalie Seagram Airlie's Fundraising Page!
On August 1st 2019, I am participating in my second Make-A-Wish Rope for Hope! I will be rappelling down 36 floors to help raise funds to grant the wishes of children battling critical medical conditions. And I’m asking for your help.
In August 2018, I rappelled for the first time. My journey fundraising for Make-A-Wish started as a 12 year old, when I started selling lemonade, cookies and friendship bracelets in my neighbourhood. When I learned about the Rope for Hope event I was inspired to set an even higher fundraising goal! As the rappelling event came closer my nerves started to grow as I had never rappelled before. Despite my nerves, I wanted to challenge myself to be brave because the Make-A-Wish children are so courageous and I find them inspiring. Truthfully, my nerves didn’t go away until I had taken a few steps down the wall and put my trust in the rope. Once I was all the way down I became exhilarated even though my body was a bit shaky!
Once again, I am participating in this amazing experience because when I read about the children’s stories and how their wishes came true through Make-A-Wish I know I want to be a part of it. I want to help put a smile on those kids faces, and bring some special memories to the parents. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their medical condition. For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses.
I am now sixteen years old, and have been fundraising for Make-A-Wish for the past 4 years! I have raised over $6,200... and I’m continuing on. Now, I'm asking for your help so we can help more children together!
Your can help make a real difference! Every donation counts - no matter the size. Your support will allow the foundation to continue to create powerful wish experiences, improving a child’s state of mind, replacing fear with happiness and helping them to feel like a normal kid again.
I also encourage anyone interested to come rappel with me – it’s a ton of fun!! Thank you so much for coming to my fundraising page!
