The 10-year-old is inviting you to participate and help make dreams come true too. You know that you'll be stopping at Dunkin' at some point in the next two weeks, so why not help change the lives of children with critical illnesses in our area.

Going on now through Sunday, June 28th, when you stop at any participating Dunkin' and donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, you'll get a special Make-A-Wish donut as a thank you. This star-shaped specialty donut has blue and white icing in honor of Make-A-Wish.

The Star Donut campaign has raised more than $448,000 for their chapters in Upstate New York since 2013 and they continue to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses through a 15 county region of New York State.

Fundraising has been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and the number of eligible children continues to grow. In fact, there are in the process of putting together almost 150 wishes right now and they need your support more than ever.
