Wish Alumni

WELCOME, WISH FAMILY ALUMNIWish Alumni

When a wish is granted for you or a family member, you become a part of a larger family; one that understands the trials and tribulations of childhood illness in a way no one else can. You and your family’s wish journey becomes part of Make-A-Wish history. And, just because the wish has been granted, doesn’t mean the wish connection is over. We’d love to stay in touch.

That’s why we’ve created a Wish Family Alumni group -- a place for past wish recipients to share stories, make connections and get involved to make future wishes come true.

CarmelJOIN OUR WISH FAMILY ALUMNI PROGRAM!

We’ll keep you posted on exciting events happening at Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington so you can continue to be in the know. Join the community of Wish Family Alumni on Facebook by emailing nyhzav@nxjn.jvfu.bet and requesting an invite.

AS A WISH FAMILY ALUMNI, HOW CAN YOU HELP?

  • Share your story: There is nothing more powerful than your words, pictures, stories and quotes to ignite support for future wishes. Please share your wish on social media and tag us @MakeAWishAKWA
  • Wish it forward: As the number of wish kids eligible to receive a wish increases, so does the need for critical funding. Find out how you can help raise funds to make future wishes a reality. We have some really easy online ways to do this! Email nyhzav@nxjn.jvfu.bet.
  • Become a wish-granting volunteer: Right now, many children are waiting for their wishes because we don’t have enough volunteers. If you or anyone you know is interested in becoming a volunteer, let us know! Email nyhzav@nxjn.jvfu.bet.

We can’t wait to hear from you and celebrate the long-lasting impact of wishes.

  • “Wishes have given my boys a chance to feel the sun on their cheeks and the freedom of movement—and a chance to focus on joy, not fear.” –Crystal, wish mom

  • “For me, the memory of Lindsey’s wish is like a precious gem that I keep tucked away in a velvet-lined box in my mind.” –Cindy, wish mom

While doctors focus on medical problems, and treatment focuses on lessening them, Make-A-Wish focuses on dreams and stops at nothing to deliver them. ”
