On December 11, staff from helped to make one boy’s holiday dream a reality.

Ryan Post, an 11-year-old that was born with arthrogryposis and severe scoliosis, had been hoping for a wheelchair-adaptive Spider-Man pinball machine for some time. He had found out about the machine in June, 2007, when he went to the Abilities Expo and played it for hours.

Ryan has been in and out of the hospital his entire life, undergoing over 25 surgeries. Before his most recent hospital stay, however, his mother decided to contact the Make-A-Wish Foundation in hopes that her son would be able to get the pinball machine that he often dreamed about.

Just a few months later, Ryan’s dream came true. Thanks to, he now owns his own pinball machine that is able to plug into his wheel chair so that he can play it by using the micro-switches on the side – and you can bet that he’s loving every minute of it!

Stories like these show how incredible corporate holiday giving can really be. We all have an opportunity to share with others that are in need. By following the example of Oversee, we too can make an incredible impact on somebody’s life!
