The coronavirus pandemic has closed businesses and mandated shelter in place orders. Schools have been closed, sports leagues have been suspended, and many workers have been left unemployed.
The outbreak has also affected local nonprofits such as Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic, whose offices were recently forced to close. The organization, on average, grants 375 wishes per year, but almost all of these wishes involve air travel or large group settings, meaning they can’t happen right now.
Knowing this, Tom Wilson recorded a video message for any of the kids who might be bummed out. He also bought activities for all the kids whose wishes are waiting to pass the time at home or in the hospital.
