Kids for Wish Kids®

Kids for Wish Kids® is a Make-A-Wish® program that enables students to discover philanthropy by selecting their own fundraising project and managing it from start to finish.

Students develop leadership skills, build self-esteem, learn the joy of giving and learn about teamwork while working towards a goal, making a difference in the life of a child who is fighting overwhelming odds.

Program Objectives

  • Increase awareness among children and teenagers about the Make-A-Wish mission
  • Encourage young people to become actively involved in fulfilling wishes
  • Foster the value of community service, using this program as a hands-on learning experience for children
  • Create school spirit and help students learn how to work together for a common goal

Project Ideas

  • Organize a holiday party, a dance, a bowl-a-thon or walk-a-thon

  • Sell Make-A-Wish Stars

You can try one of these ideas or devise a project on your own!
