Living the Dream
Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a better chance of survival. Wishes also give kids and families who are going through a very challenging time a chance to dream beyond illness and beyond treatment. Imagination becomes real for these children and their families through community contributions and support from volunteers who believe in the power of hope to heal.
Transform a Life
When you grant a child's wish, it is a win-win situation and wishes are all granted by volunteers! We believe that nothing is more fulfilling than volunteering with Make-A-Wish! Beyond granting a child’s true wish, you can use your other strengths to help: whether it's medical outreach, acting as a translator, or recruiting new volunteers, there is no shortage of ways to help fulfill a moment that a child will remember forever.
The Dream Team
The biggest names in sports and in Hollywood have all taken time to make wishes come true-- from Will Smith, John Cena, Stephan Curry, and Beyonce, to the late Carrie Fisher. Seeing some of the most powerful and influential people in the world supporting the dreams of children can inspire each of us to step up to help kids in our own communities.
