Showing We Care by Helping Grant Sabrina’s Wish

Sabrina, make-a-wishOur philosophy at the Globe University/Minnesota School of Business network of schools is ‘We Care’.  We care about our students, our employees and our communities.  We promote service and applied learning in our classrooms to give students a quality education and to give back to our communities.  We look to see what the community needs are and what resources we have to help.

 

One of our community partners is Make-A-Wish® Minnesota.  Make-A-Wish® Minnesota grants wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.  Make-A-Wish® Minnesota was founded in 1982.  More than 3,800 wishes have been granted across the state since that time.

 

The Make-A-Wish foundation started with one boy’s wish.  Chris Greicius was 7 years old and his wish was to be a police officer.  Numerous individuals came together to grant this wish and Make A Wish was born.  There are 62 chapters in the US and its territories.  The organization has touched the lives of more than 250,000 children worldwide.

 

Over the years Globe University/Minnesota School of Business has supported Make-A-Wish® Minnesota with volunteering, service learning projects and financial donations. This year we are proud to have partnered with Make-A-Wish® Minnesota to help participate in granting the actual wish of Sabrina.  Sabrina’s wish was to write and record her own songs.  Sabrina used the facilities of the Institute of Production and Recording as well as the talents of Sabrina, Make-a-Wishengineer Kevin Bowe and producer Steve Hodge to record her CD “Revolution.”

 

Sabrina performed her songs live on December 14th at the Macy’s Believe Day at the Mall of America.  She will have her CD release party on Saturday, January 20.  Sabrina shares the story of her wish in this short video donated by Globe University/Minnesota School of Business.

 

All of us at Globe University/Minnesota School of Business are proud to have been able to help make Sabrina’s wish come true.
