  • Ellie is an 88 year old superwoman. She started skiing when she was 33 years old and at the age of 82 had to give it up because of too many injuries. Ever since, her dream has been to get back on the slopes one last time. Luckily, our friends at Wish of a Lifetime heard Ellie's story and decided they'd help her achieve that goal. We were so lucky to have taken part in this adventure and want to thank our friends at Wish of a Lifetime a million times for inviting us along on this journey.

    Please please please go check out the incredible work they do to help elders live out their last wishes and get out of isolation:

    If you wanna become involved with Wish of a Lifetime right now, here's what you can do LITERALLY tomorrow:

    Tomorrow, February 14th, Wish of a lifetime's 5th annual CupidCrew movement will impact 20 thousand lives worldwide. CupidCrew is a movement that delivers thousands of roses to our elders around the world on Valentine’s Day.

    Join us in the fight against senior isolation tomorrow by delivering a rose to an elder in your community or by donating 14 dollars to the movement - (if you want us to find out you did it just use the hashtag #CupidCrew and we'll make sure to check it out).

    Hi my name is freja, all my nan ever wanted was to go to South America and that’s the only place she ever wanted to go. She was a primary school teacher in Adelaide SA (in Australia) and in the middle of 2017 she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and although the tried to fight her hardest and show us her grandchildren that all was ok now she can even remember us let alone her own daughters. Her whole meaning of life was to make other feel better to improve others live more then her own she would devote all her time to help other she barely had any time for herself. She is my hero

    My grandpa, who is turning 87 in a few days, used to be in the Navy, and had traveled to a few international bases, but there is still one place he wants to go. I asked him if he could choose anywhere in the world to go where would it be? And he replied with Tahiti. I told him we would go one day, but he shook his head. Ever since he lost his leg to an infection, he hasn’t had much motivation to go anywhere. This would fulfill one of his last wishes :)) thank you guys for the opportunity to write this and thank you guys for always giving back to people!
