Addyson & Ezra: Good Life for Healthcare Heroes – First Wish Machine Grant


For the first Wish Machine Grant of 2022, the Forest Family has stepped up to both make and grant a wish.

Long-time Forest Family member, Ezra, wished to donate their Enchanted Campgrounds Wristband & Lodging Package to healthcare individuals who were not only at the forefront of pandemic response, but who also found ways to maintain a positive attitude and energy towards their community. In return, Ezra wished to assist HQ in the behind-the-scenes production of Electric Forest 2022.

In true Forest serendipity, the Wish Machine also received a heart-warming wish from Grand Rapids local, Addyson. In her wish, Addyson described her work over the past few years as a Biomedical Laboratory Scientist – specifically working to develop and formulate a vaccine, and also to volunteer her time caring for patients, processing blood tests for those at risk, working at vaccinations centers and clinical units, and continuing to protect her greater community. In return for doing this important work, Addyson wished to reunite with her fellow Forest Family – the family that embraced her in ways beyond her imagination during her first Electric Forest in 2019. 

As the first Electric Forest 2022 Wish Machine grant, HQ is proud to welcome both Ezra and Addyson to The Forest. Ezra will be integrated with HQ in a role that aligns with their intentions, and Addyson and a guest will be welcomed to enjoy the weekend while living the Good Life in the Enchanted Campgrounds.
