Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses the strength they need to fight for better health. That might sound magical, but it takes the collective force of doctors, donors and volunteers – all working together to make the seemingly impossible possible.
World Wish Day celebrates the founding of Make-A-Wish: April 29, 1980, the day seven-year-old Chris Greicius received his heartfelt wish to be a police officer, and the idea of Make-A-Wish was born. It took a community of people to bring Chris’ wish to life and to found what is now the largest wish granting organization in the world, just like it takes a community of donors, volunteers, and medical professionals to make each wish come true.
This World Wish Day, help us get closer to our vision of granting the wish of every eligible child. Imagine future ‘My Life Now’ stories that could exist because of your support this World Wish Day. Even a small contribution could transform the life of a child.
Wishes take muscle. It takes you.
