Elevity, a Gordon Flesch Company, is proud to have been able to help the Make-A-Wish Foundation fulfill a Green Bay teenager’s wish.
For nearly 40 years, Make-A-Wish has been granting life-changing wishes for children and families. Thanks to generous partners and donors, Make-A-Wish has made more than 300,000 wishes come true around the world since 1980. So when Mustaf, a 17-year-old from Green Bay wished for a top-of-the-line gaming computer, Make-A-Wish Wisconsin reached out to Elevity.
Elevity Project Engineer Jake Scott and vCIO Matt Freymiller jumped at the chance to create a one-of-a-kind gaming rig for Mustaf. The computer that Make-A-Wish Wisconsin delivered to Mustaf includes an i9 processor, 32 GB of RAM, and RGB lighting with glass panel sides.
Freymiller has served in the Gordon Flesch Charitable Foundation for three years, but this was his first Make-A-Wish experience. “My oldest son, who’s about the same age as Mustaf, games with his friends as a way to stay in communication and maintain his friendships,” says Business Analyst & vCIO Matt Freymiller. “I hope Mustaf is able to enjoy those same benefits and that it helps him heal and stay healthy.”
Giving back to the communities they serve is part of the GFC company DNA and was instilled by its founder, Gordon Flesch. Since its inception in 2002, the Gordon Flesch Charitable Foundation has donated nearly $2 million to various philanthropic organizations in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, and Ohio. “I had been searching for different ways to give back to the community and had been at a loss until this chance came up,” says Scott. “This was an opportunity for me to apply my knowledge of technology to a good cause. It fills me with great joy to know that I’m playing a part in making a wish come true.”
Every 20 minutes, a child is diagnosed with a critical illness. But thanks to Make-A-Wish, every 34 minutes a child’s wish is granted in the U.S. A wish creates strength, hope, and positive change – not only for the recipient but also for their family and community. “When Make-A-Wish is involved, you know the person’s diagnosis is serious. It’s good knowing that Mustaf’s wish is something that’ll give him hours of enjoyment while he’s going through treatment,” says Freymiller.
