THE FINAL 2018 WISH “GRANT” – GRiZ WISH MACHINE SECRET WOODLAND SURPRISE
After 10 months, 15 granted wishes, and 2 magical weekends in The Forest, it’s time to thank all of the inspiring, motivating, and encouraging souls that participated in the Electric Forest 2018 Wish Machine and promoted positive change in communities around the world.
With over 5,000 proposals submitted, the Wish Machine ultimately selected 15 wishes to support, celebrate, and reward. To complete the 2018 Wish Machine and acknowledge all GRANTed wishes, The Forest hosted a surprise during the Second weekend of Electric Forest 2018, inspired by four particular Wish Machine proposals, each submitting wishes that involved meeting DJ and Musician GRiZ:
- Chealsie and The Pink Ribbon Girls
- Lucas and Trees for Churubusco
- Allison and Cultivating Creativity
- Keith and Gumby’s Club Fore A Cure
These winners believed their wish had already been granted by being invited to attend the festival with their friends, having no idea an additional surprise was in store. Meeting at a designated spot on site, all 2018 Wish Machine Winners and their guests were shuttled to a secret woodland location where they were met with a DJ set from their favorite artist, pizza, and an impromptu meditation session led by GRiZ himself, set among the lush Michigan forest.
A Forest dream come true. This gathering serves as a testament to the power of the Wish Machine and the Forest Family – WE can be the change that we strive for, WE can make a difference, WE can inspire each other, and WE can unite together.
THE ELECTRIC FOREST WISH MACHINE
The Wish Machine sparked inspiration from across the globe. From local communities in Michigan to as far as Tanzania and Cambodia, the Forest Family considered what they could do – for individuals, neighborhoods, communities, and societies – to help make the world a better place. From raising money and awareness for mental health, rare diseases, and sustainable efforts; donating clothing, personal items, and funds to charity drives and disaster clean-up efforts; volunteering time and resources to local humane societies, hospitals, and homeless shelters; and so much more.
The Wish Machine challenged the Forest Family to venture out into the world and spread positive action and good deeds and it is an honor for Electric Forest to reward the community and grant their wildest dreams in The Forest.
Learn more about all of the awe-inspiring acts of kindness from the Forest Family, and stay tuned for the launch of the Electric Forest 2019 Wish Machine!
