BENEFITING: Make-A-Wish America


The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.

It is the largest wish-granting charity in the world, with 67 chapters in the United States and the U.S. territories of Guam and Puerto Rico. Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has granted nearly 200,000 wishes worldwide.

A seven-year-old boy named Chris Greicius, who dreamed of becoming a police officer for a day, inspired the creation of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Officers of the Arizona Department of Public Safety and U.S. Customs made his wish come true on April 29, 1980.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is funded primarily through corporate and private donations. Requests for wishes come from parents or guardians, medical professionals, and children themselves.

The fulfillment of a wish creates a magical moment for children, families, and everyone involved in a wish. It is the organization''s vision that people everywhere will Share The Power Of A Wish.
