About Us

When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope. This can have a real and tangible impact on a child’s health. In fact, research shows that wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. Doctors and social workers use wishes as part of their treatment plan because wishes are that important.

We believe that a wish experience can be a game changer. This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to partner with you and create wishes that change lives.

Right now, there are enough children waiting for their wishes to fill seven school buses. Children with critical illnesses need your help today!
