Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses the strength they need to fight for better health. That might sound miraculous, but it takes the collective force of doctors, donors and volunteers – all working together to make the seemingly impossible possible. This World Wish Day, help us get closer to our vision of granting the wish of every eligible child.
Make-A-Wish grants a wish every 17 minutes around the world, thanks to the collective force of donors, volunteers and doctors making the impossible possible. Those wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that give kids with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. All of this takes muscle.
On World Wish Day 2018, you made a world of difference for more than 1,800 kids with critical illnesses. Wishes take muscle. Together, with Kailyn, WWE Superstar John Cena, and thousands of Make-A-Wish supporters, we transformed lives. Thank you for believing in the power of a wish.
Find ways to inspire positive change in your community.
