All 23 board and advisory board members of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota resigned Monday over 'philosophical differences' with the national organization.
They said they objected to directives that included ending their practice of giving $1,000 to families of children who died before their wishes were granted, forbidding wishes that involve hunting and imposing term limits on board members.
'The gap is too large and it's not going to come together,' said local president Karla Blomberg of the directives. 'It just doesn't meet our values and what we're here for.'"
