In the couple of years that I’ve been working regularly for inwhatlanguage, it’s been easy to realize that this company was more than just a mere translation agency. The people in charge of it, the warmth, the communication with the clients, the attention to detail, the care in each and every project. It felt like a young person who just got out of college, bright and eager, perfectionist and ambitious. And the good thing is that, as time passed by, its spirit hasn’t changed.
Now, however, inwhatlanguage has gone a step beyond in its commitment with society by participating with the Make-A-Wish® Foundation in a hopeful and adventurous goal: raising money to help children in need.
The Make-A-Wish® website explains their goals and dreams clearly: “Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories, on average, every 38 minutes. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve”.
Their story began with the fulfillment of Chris Greicius’ dream, a kid who died of leukemia at the age of 7, but not without experiencing his long-desired wish of becoming a policeman for a day. Chris died with a smile, but it was not only his life that changed that day – the police officers that helped realize his dream felt also different, like brand new people. Such is the power of a child’s dream.
inwhatlanguage wants to be a part of that. Our focus on languages has always been a way to realize our clients’ goals, helping them go beyond their geographical frontiers and reaching people out there who would otherwise remain forever unaware of their intention and their services. If with our skills we can help making children’s wishes come true and become universal, it is without saying that our skills will be put to good use.
That is why we are helping with Make-A-Wish’s main fundraising event, the annual Rubber Ducky Derby, which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary and will take place on August 10, at Seven Peaks Salt Lake, 1200 West 1700 South. As a company, we have donated $600 to the cause, and we have also created our own fundraising page to get donations from people who wants to share this beautiful dream.
