legit
hey meauxjeauxx2, have you checked int the legitimacy of this 'orginization' too many scams out there that are helping 'something else' other than what they are claiming to help, i donate when i can but only to charities that i know help the kids out, ie i have donated to 'THE MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION' cause they have help someone that i know and love

no scam
Before I donate anything I google whatever the organizations name and add 'Scam' to the end of it.
That's the best possible way to determine if they're legit or not.

completely legit
Hey tuffhuntin, I assure you this is legit, thats why I placed the contact information right in the post. This charity has been around for over 30 years. They are completely operated on a volunteer basis, meaning no one gets paid for their services. All the benifits go to making a child's wish possible. Only children living in Louisiana or receiving long-term medical treatment in Louisiana are eligible for consideration. If you have any other concerns, please email me and I can put you in touch with some people who would be very happy to tell you more about what this great organization does for children in Luisiana.

I can't say no when it comes to something like this. It makes me realize how blessed I am to have two healthy children and a healthy wife. I am glad to be able to help out.
