World Wish Day®

We are grateful for you.

Maybe you have already changed the life of a seriously ill child. Maybe you are looking for the right charity to support and hope to find it here.

No matter 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.

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.

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.

Join us and show your support by sharing your World Wish Day message with the hashtag #worldwishday.
