Last January 1, Gregg Dodd of Columbus, Ohio woke up and decided he was going to do 52 things for the new year. Number seventeen on the list was ‘making a wish come true’.

“Around the holidays you start hearing about all these families in need, so I started keeping an eye open on what sort of ways I could help,” he said.

Dodd heard about a local single mom with three teens and decided they would be the family whose wish he would grant this year.

With 200 people buying gift cards and sending cash donations, with totals reaching an estimated $5,000, he said, “I’m not sure if they know that magnitude of what’s going to happen.”

Let’s hope there is an update after the family gets their surprise.
