Purple Wishing Gate began with a dream. Its founder, Barbara D. MacAdam, dreamed of her 12-year-old daughter, Bonnie Rose, who had passed away from cancer, standing behind a purple gate. As people came up to the gate, Bonnie listened to their wishes, then ran off to give them to God. Inspired by her dream, Barbara began writing and painting personalized blessings that people of all faiths can give as gifts. For the past 13 years, Purple Wishing Gate has spread inspirational messages of hope, love and gratitude; in addition, 10% of all sales go to children with cancer.
