I WISH FOR A CHRISTMAS was started in 2008 and is powered by One Community, One Voice, One Vision 501c3. Demetrius L. Brown founder and Board Chairman thought back on his childhood, when his mother and father divorced, which then his mother and him moved to Charleston SC. Demetrius mother got into an car accident and couldn't work for a while and times got real hard for her. Christmas came and there wasn't anything under the tree for both Demetrius nor his mother. Demetrius was hurt and he knew his mother was hurt also, to see her only child sad on Christmas Day. In 2008 while he was watching TV, he came across a movie which took him back to his childhood and that day Demetrius came to the conclusion, that he will make away to keep other families from ever feeling the way his mother and him felt on Christmas Day. His partner at the time Yolanda Sallis and he started I WISH FOR A CHRISTMAS to serve underprivilege children with a bundle of joy on Christmas Day.
