Every child deserves a childhood, but right now, more wishes are waiting than ever before. And in these challenging times, Make-A-Wish kids represent some of the most vulnerable of our population. While they wait for their wish to come true, help us do all we can to encourage them by sharing a message of hope. Together we can shine a light of hope and joy for children in their darkest days, bringing them strength for tomorrow.

Create a message, video, photo, song, dance —whatever you can imagine — sharing a message of hope.

Tips for Creating Your Message of Hope
☆ Speak from the heart ☆ Let them know they're supported ☆ Remind them to keep wishing ☆ Give them encouragement
Wishes Still Need You
Every wish is made possible through the generous support of our community. Here's how you can help:
Ensure Make-A-Wish has the funding available to resume wishes as quickly as possible when it is safe. Children with critical illnesses count on these wishes and we cannot afford to keep them waiting a single unnecessary day.
Transform the life of a wish kid and their family by adopting their wish entirely.
Get your friends and family involved in making stars align for Wish Kids. Every dollar raised helps replace fear with confidence, anxiety with excitement and sadness with joy. Be a Wish Hero and create a virtual fundraiser.
