“A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes”

According to Cinderella if you tell your wish, it won’t come true. Sorry Cinderella, but the only way wishes come true is if you share them with the people you love. I thank God every day that Gabby shared her wish.

Gabby’s wish 20 years ago was that the other kids in the hospital would have their own Bag of Fun. Although her fight ended in the fall of 2004, her wish was kept alive. My goal is to ensure that her wish never dies.

YOU have had an integral role in fulfilling Gabby’s wish. With your help we have delivered over 15,000 Bags of Fun to children in the fight of their lives. The Bags of Fun program has brought joy, laughter and relief to kids and their families for 20 years. You have believed in us, now we are asking you to plan and dream with us.

In celebration of 20 years of Gabby’s legacy, our goal is to raise $100,000 in the Dream Fund. This fund will be used to enable The Gabby Krause Foundation to sustain Bags of Fun for the long term. This is an exciting time for us as we look to the future of The Gabby Krause Foundation and the Bags of Fun program.

You have generously given of your time, talent and treasure and I am deeply grateful for our amazing community. A community who heard a grieving mother ask to help her 6-year old’s wish come true. To quote Gabby’s favorite princess

Who says that my Dreams have to stay just my Dreams

We hope you will consider sharing in Gabby’s dream and commemorating this 20 year milestone.
