Wishes for Senior Citizens

Giving Back to Those Who Gave So Much...

Wish of a Lifetime’s (WOL) mission is to foster respect and appreciation for seniors by granting life enriching Wishes

Wish of a Lifetime was established by two-time Olympic Skier and former NFL football player Jeremy Bloom. In 2008, Bloom launched the organization with a vision to initiate a cultural change by granting the wish of a lifetime to deserving seniors throughout the United States.  The National 501(c)3 nonprofit organization was launched in living honor of Bloom’s grandmother, Donna Wheeler, and his grandfather Jerry Bloom, who both provide constant inspiration to Bloom.
