Make-A-Wish Vermont wants to make their mission clear, and they've enlisted the "Most Interesting Man in the World" to help. Manchester resident Jonathan Goldsmith — best known as the debonair, silver-haired gentleman of Dos Equis beer commercials and internet meme fame — costars with Make-a-Wish teen Jamie Heath in a PSA that began airing last month. It's part of what Make-A-Wish Vermont president and CEO James Hathaway calls the What You May Not Know campaign, highlighting that the organization serves kids with a wide range of life-threatening illnesses, not just those with terminal conditions. Dummerston's Tom Bodett of "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!" lends his familiar voice to a campaign radio spot, as well. Make-a-Wish trips such as Disney adventures and White House tête-à-têtes with President Obama create experiences that "help in the healing process," Hathaway says, and give sick kids "something to look forward to."
