11-Year-Old Girl Becomes A Genie In Disguise When She Starts Granting Wishes For The Elderly.
“I’m 11, and even I have enough money saved in my piggy bank to help Pearl get a few more visits with her dog,” says Ruby Kate.
Ruby Kate then decided to try to make the dreams of other nursing home residents come true. With her notepad and pen in her hands, Ruby Kate began to make her way to the rooms of other residents to find out what their dreams were.
“If you could have three wishes, what would they be?” was the first question that Ruby Kate asked the residents.
Ruby Kate quickly learned that the residents wanted pretty simple things. One resident wanted a pair of pants that fit. One other resident wanted to take a trip to a water park to watch the families have fun. One of the most common requests was to have some fast food.
Ruby Kate decided that she was going to do everything in her power to make some of these dreams come true.
“It was a great experience for everyone. You expect people to tell you they want a million dollars or a new car, but they don’t. They want snacks or a pair of pants that fit.” With her mother by her side, Ruby Kate then decided to launch her Three Wishes project to attempt to raise some funds for the elderly.
Her mother even created a GoFundMe account and an Amazon Wishlist for Ruby Kate's project.
Since November, Ruby Kate has managed to raise over $30,000 for the wishes of nursing home residents. She has been able to help people purchase their dog/cat food, corrective hearing devices, clothing, and snacks.
