Phillips Murrah's Paying It Forward amplifies the message of one non-profit organization each month, all year long.
Since December of 2020, Phillips Murrah has partnered with Oklahoma NPR radio station KGOU to sponsor broadcast announcements each month that shine a light on a selected non-profit organization. Our aim is to amplify each beneficiary organizations’ needs and goals, and to help increase awareness, drive volunteer quality and quantity, assist in fundraising support, and improve capacity to deliver service to the community. In December 2022, Phillips Murrah expanded the reach of our Paying it Forward partnership to include NPR’s other OKC radio station, KOSU.
Our Paying it Forward beneficiary in April 2023 is Make-A-Wish. #PIFOKC
Phillips Murrah is proud to support Make-A-Wish Oklhaoma, where a wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a critical illness. A wish come true can be a crucial turning point in a child’s life. A wish can be that spark that helps these children believe that anything is possible and gives them the strength to fight harder against their illnesses. This impact is why they are driven to make every one of these wishes come true.
Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved—wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.
This one belief guides them in everything they do at Make-A-Wish. It inspires them to grant life-changing wishes for children going through so much. It compels them to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives them to make their donated resources go as far as possible. Most of all, it’s the founding principle of their vision to grant the wish of every eligible child.
I love that Make a Wish provides hope for families going through extremely difficult times
