Make-A-Wish® Iowa and Trusted Choice Grant 14-Year-Old
Kaeden’s wish to go to Ireland, to see where his favorite show is filmed.
NORTH LIBERTY, IOWA (July 24, 2018) – Trusted Choice® Independent Insurance Agents of Iowa has teamed up with Make-A-Wish® Iowa to help grant Kaeden’s one true wish. The fourteen-year-old from North Liberty has his wish reveal party tonight. Kaeden will be surprised by his wish granters, family, and Trusted Choice tonight as he learns he will get to go to Ireland to see where his favorite show was filmed later this month. Trusted Choice, Independent Insurance Agents of Iowa and Make-A-Wish® Iowa have worked to grant wishes to help change the lives of Iowa children with critical illnesses.
Volunteers and Make-A-Wish professionals have worked hard to ensure that Kaeden, his sixteen-year-old brother and parents have the best time in Ireland, as they tour spots where his favorite show was filmed. Thank you to Trusted Choice for helping make this possible!
The sponsorship of Kaeden’s wish is part of a larger commitment, $300,000 in total, from Trusted Choice that will help state Associations throughout the country grant more wishes.

Make-A-Wish® creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Together, generous donors, supporters, staff and 33,000 volunteers across the U.S., grant a wish every 34 minutes, on average, somewhere in the country.
