Welcome, Wish Hero!
Thank you for considering joining our extraordinary Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana Wish Heroes community. Wish Heroes are wish families, wish kid alumni, volunteers, medical professionals, and donors who help us tell the Make-A-Wish story.
This year marks Make-A-Wish’s 40th year of granting wishes. To honor this milestone, we’re hosting a campaign that will help shine a light of hope and joy during this uncertain time. We’re inviting our Wish Heroes to make a difference by sharing their Make-A-Wish story and asking their friends and family to help support a cause they feel passionate about.
But it’s more than fundraising. Your willingness to share personal stories and supportive messages introduce more people to the transformational power of a wish and positively impacts the ability to grant wishes in the coming months.
Become a Wish Hero
WHAT IS THE WISH HEROES CAMPAIGN? The Wish Heroes campaign celebrates 40 years of wish granting and Make-A-Wish supporters. The campaign is based on the power of a selected group of individuals – Wish Heroes – each sharing why wishes matter and raising funds for the Lexington and eastern Kentucky community. Each Wish Hero strives to raise $1,600 by inspiring 40 friends, family members and colleagues to donate at least $40 each.
WHAT DOES A WISH HERO DO?
As a Wish Hero, you share with others why you are passionate about Make-A-Wish. You can share your story and ask for donations so more children can experience the life-changing power of a wish.
HOW MUCH DOES A WISH HERO RAISE?
Each Wish Hero strives to raise $1,600 during the campaign. Please know Make-A-Wish is incredibly grateful for your support of wish kids and their families regardless of the amount raised.
HOW DOES A WISH HERO SHARE THEIR MESSAGE AND COLLECT DONATIONS?
Through a personalized online fundraising page, a Wish Hero shares their story and mobilizes friends, family members and colleagues to donate to help ensure local wishes are granted for years to come. When you commit to becoming a Wish Hero, Make-A-Wish creates a personal fundraising page for you. Your personal fundraising page is a web page that your contacts visit to read your story and make a donation if able. The page is mobile-friendly and very easy to use. (There’s even an app…)
