Summary

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Based in Phoenix, Make-A-Wish is one of the world's leading children's charities, serving children in every community in the United States and its territories.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Make-A-Wish estimates 27,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition annually and thus may be eligible for a wish.

How will this project solve this problem?

A wish experience is frequently a source of inspiration for children undergoing difficult medical treatments and a positive force that helps them overcome their obstacles. A wish experience is often the catalyst that rekindles a child's belief in themselves and the promise of their future.

Potential Long Term Impact

According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can have positive impacts on the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family.
