We started this fundraiser to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses. Together, we can do it.
Wish kids are some of the bravest and sweetest kids you'll ever know. They wish to work in a pickle factory, become a superhero, go snorkeling, give their baseball team new uniforms, and push all of the buttons in a tall building's elevator. Their innocence and unexpected wisdom stays with you.
Make-A-Wish grants thousands of unique wishes each year. A lot, yes. But that's only 50% of eligible kids. We are fundraising so more deserving kids and their families can know the happiness, relief and renewal a wish can bring.
Please help by contributing to our fundraiser. Every dollar matters.
We have grown this fundraiser from $8,000 in 2019 to $25,000 in 2022!
Thank you for your support!
