Wishes

Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington's mission is simple and clear. We do one thing: grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Last year alone our chapter granted more than 300 wishes to local children. Experience the stories of those who know firsthand the power of a wish-come-true.
