Helping to Make the World a Nicer Place to Age, One Wish at a Time
Twilight Wish Foundation was founded in Doylestown, Pennsylvania in 2003 by Cass Forkin, after her chance encounter with several elderly women in a diner. After noticing them counting their change to pay their diner bill, Forkin anonymously paid it for them. Their gratitude for her simple gesture inspired Forkin to found Twilight Wish Foundation, the first national wish granting organization dedicated to the needs of the elderly.

“Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everyone. I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty, than the person who has nothing to eat.” –Mother Teresa
