Make-A-Wish 7000th Wish and How You Can Help
Help Zander in his quest to find an alligator and the Make-A-Wish Foundation with its 7,000 wish fulfillment. Seven year old Zander, who has Tuberous Sclerosis wished to become a zookeeper. On May 12th, his wish was granted and he was named an Honorary Zookeeper. Shortly after, he received urgent news that an alligator was found on the loose in Dallas.
Zander’s first task as Zookeeper is to track down the alligator, but he needs your help. From now until May 25th, download and print the gator tracks from the Make-A-Wish website. Cut them out and put them around your house, your place of work, your school, or in a public place. Then take photos and add them to the Make a Wish North Texas Facebook page. Don’t forget to write something and tag the Facebook page so Zander can find the alligator and bring him to his new home at the Dallas Zoo. For example, “Hi Zander and @Make-A-Wish North Texas – I was out at the park today and found these alligator tracks!”
Be sure to like the Facebook page so your message will show up. Plus when you do, supplies that Zander needs to track the gator will open up. And Zander will need all the help he can get because on May 26th, he’ll get a very important note from former President George W. Bush. Zander will learn that suspicious gator tracks were found at the presidential library construction site. The live scavenger hunt will begin!
Everyone is invited to join Zander, enjoy music, food and entertainment in Downtown Dallas on May 26th for the live 7000th Wish Party:
- Visit the sign station and make signs to greet Zander upon his arrival
- Interact with animals from the Dallas Zoo
- Be an active part of a wish – participate in Zander’s rescue of the alligator and help send-off the two for a fun filled day at the Dallas Zoo.
