Blue Shift is an E-Ambassador for the Make-A-Wish Foundation
The Make-A-Wish Foundation is an outstanding organization and it is a privilege to be able to share with my readers stories and details on their incredible mission that has been enriching lives since 1980. Below I’ll break down some details on what this means, as well as ways in which you can get involved.
HOW WILL BLUE SHIFT BE INVOLVED?
From time to time, I will post and/or link to stories about Make-A-Wish recipients as well as news and event updates (some updates will be sent as tweets). The first post will be the story of my own daughter who was granted a wish by the Make-A-Wish Foundation last year, and I hope to post her story here in the near future. Sharing experiences like mine and others I think are the best way to demonstrate what the Make-A-Wish foundation is all about and the profound ways it changes lives.
You may also notice that on Blue Shift you will now see banners for the Make-A-Wish Foundation on the top right of every page.
WORLD WISH DAY AND WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
On April 29,1980 the first wish was granted and in celebration of this beginning, April 29 is World Wish Day — a global celebration of wish making.
There are many ways to help promote the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Mission including:
- Sharing stories with social media (Twitter/Facebook)
- Donating time, money or frequent flier miles
- Corporate sponsorships

WILL YOU STILL BE BLOGGING ABOUT VIRTUALIZATION, CLOUD, TECH, ETC ?
I can assure you that it is still my intention to continue making technical posts. My posting has been slow for several different reasons over the past few months (one of them is preparing for the birth of our 3rd child in perhaps just a matter of hours now). At this point I don’t know how frequently I will be posting, but it certainly is my intention to continue blogging from time to time on IT/tech/management issues.
We hear much about “work-life balance” and in a way this is a way to bring such a balance to Blue Shift. Life is not all about work, and I hope that by adding an occasional Make-A-Wish story to the “normal” content here will make for a good mix and balance.
