Electronic Arts employee Wendell Harlow has been honored by the Make-A-Wish Foundation with a Queen's Diamond Jubilee Award. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal marks the 60th anniversary of England's Queen Elizabeth II’s "accession to the Throne" and honors the achievements and contributions of Canadians. Wendell received the distinct honor for over a decade of supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Canada.
Wendell started working with the organization in 1997 and over the past 15 years has granted lots of wishes for kids on behalf of EA. Using her connections to the movie industry, providing behind-the-scenes tours and access to EA and taking part in other special events, Wendell has made an unmistakable impact on the organization and the sick children who have dreams they need fulfilled. Wendell, along with Make-A-Wish CEO of British Columbia Ross Hetherington, also created the EA Challenge to raise funds for the organization.
