What is Share Your Wish? I wanted to interview Buck and Rebecca Schleifer, founders of Share Your Wish. What is Share Your Wish? It is a wonderful tool that was created to help children learn to be empathetic and charitable. Do you often get too many gifts for your children’s birthday? Buck and Rebecca created Share Your Wish to create a platform that allows children to give a portion of their birthday money towards the charity of their choice. I have used Share Your Wish for the past three to four years and love it. My children also have enjoyed the whole process because they feel they are giving back to a charity that is important to them.
About Founders, Buck and Rebecca Schleifer
Buck is one half of the founding team of Share Your Wish, which also includes his wife, Rebecca. He is a dedicated father to his three children and spends a lot of his free time pursuing his passion, which is Share Your Wish. He believes that “things” do not create happiness is what drives Buck to fight the impulse to give his kids everything they want, and was the main catalyst for creating Share Your Wish.
Rebecca makes up the other half of the founding team of Share Your Wish. Rebecca was a Special Education teacher for ten years. She left her position in 2008 to take on the most important role of all, motherhood.
Rebecca hopes to utilize her experience with young children and how to teach them effectively, by offering parents ways in which to teach their youngsters the virtues of being charitable.
Rebecca and her husband created Share Your Wish in hopes that families will begin teaching their young children about what is truly important in life. She believes that people must always come before things. She hopes to inspire families to celebrate their children’s birthdays with presents that have special meaning, and create a way to make their child’s day even more special by sharing with others. Rebecca’s goal is to continue to “teach, share, and inspire” others.
