  • 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).

    My grandma always wanted to go skydiving, but now she thinks she is too old. So one of my biggest dreams are to go skydiving with my grandmother. She told me once, that even though your body gets older, you still feel young on the inside. So my wish is for her to see that she is the only limit in her life.
