We were contacted Bethany Davis, the cousin of Avvy Wetzel, for this wish. 20-month-old Avvy tragically lost her life after drowning earlier this month. Bethany was hoping BK could bring a bit of light into the lives of Avvy’s two brothers, Liam and Benny. Together, we decided the boys would love a day and ride with Thomas the Train! Along with their parents, Amy and Bill, the boys will be receiving tickets for “A Day ...Out with Thomas” at Strasburg Railroad in Ronks, PA. A souvenir whistle and conductor hat are being delivered to the boys before this special day.
Our thoughts are with you and we hope this day out with the boys can bring a bit of joy back into your lives!
Here's the wish we received:
Dear BK, my friend Natasha is a special person & a dedicated single mom. She works so hard to give her kids everything they need. If you could help Natasha with school supplies for her babies I know this will take some pressure off of her with school starting. The cost of school supplies are hard for single moms.
Dear Alex, we at BK love to help dedicated single moms like Natasha. That's why we are granting your wish & gifting Natasha a $100 Walmart gift card to purchase the school supplies her kids need.
The Williamstown Braves football team lost one of their own last week leaving teammates crushed. Darius Boyer, a much loved teammate passed away when he drowned while enjoying a day at the lake with friends. As it is our mission to bring joy to struggling kids, we advised 3 of his teammates last night that a wish to Bianca's Kids from one of the...ir teammates was granted. We will be taking the boys to meet the Phila Eagles & spend the day at training camp this summer.
Tyrik Glenn, Dondre Dodson & Richie Stanzione are all worthy recipients of this wish. Seeing these grieving boys smile for even a moment was such a blessing.
Darius & Mike were the best of friends & teammates on the Williamstown Braves Football team. Last week Darius passed away when he drowned while enjoying a day out with friends, leaving many including Mike devastated.
We received a wish from one of the two boys' teammates asking that we grant a wish for Mike. The wish was for us to take Mike to meet the Phila Eagles & to spend the day at Eagles training camp. The wish maker felt that this wish could bring his teammate a little joy during this difficult time. It is for all these reasons that we granted this wish.
How amazing the love is between all of these boys/teammates. Our thoughts and prayers remain with all of Darius' family & friends.
