Maybe you have already changed the life of a child with a critical illness. Maybe you’re looking for the right charity to support and hope to find it here.
No matter what the reason, we are ready to stand with you in honor
of World Wish Day®, a worldwide “Thank You” day that celebrates all Make-A-Wish® medical professionals, donors, volunteers, sponsors, wish kids and families.
Research shows that Make-A-Wish experiences help children fight the effects of their illnesses. Wishes help kids look past their limitations, overcome their anxiety and improve their quality of life. That means a better chance at recovering.
Together we grant wishes – but the true power and support comes from you. Because when you grant wishes, you do even more than bring joy to children. You also give them an edge in conquering their illnesses.
