Forgotten Wishes Foundation Inc

Every gift from a friend is a wish for your happiness.

Mission

Our mission is to be a source of joy for people with disabilities that inspires a sense of belonging. Currently, one in four people of all ages lives with a disability that requires additional caregiving to get through their day. Over 40% of people with a disability that keeps them from living, working, or playing without assistance do not have a loved one or friend to provide extra care or advocate for them. This means that they are not remembered on their birthday, holidays, and often they are just forgotten by our community. We can offer a space for friendship, belonging, and remembering. One of the ways we do this is through our Forget-Me-Not Friends Club. We send cards, small gifts, and fun stuff throughout the year to club members. It is a small gesture with a giant impact.

Forget-Me-Not Friends Club

We administer a free subscription service for people with disabilities called the Forget-Me-Not Friends Club. This is for people of all ages with a disability that keeps them from living, working, playing, and caring for themselves without the support of others. They can register to be a member, or an authorized agent may register them on their behalf, to join the club. They will receive a welcome package in the mail, followed by an annual personalized birthday card, small gifts, holiday greetings, and fun stuff throughout the year!
