What Do We Do With Your Donation?

What Do We Do With Your Donation?

We use most of your donation to help our wish children to grant their one-true wish. There are many different wish types:

“To-have”

To have a computer, a bike, a dog…these are often connected to a great experience or even special memories. For example, a wish child wishes to have a computer to attend online classes from his school

“To-meet”

To meet a celebrity, a Youtuber, a streamer…they are often an inspiration or bring lots of happiness to a wish child. For example, a wish child wishes to meet a Youtuber who specializes in baking.

“To-go”

To go to a sports event, a cruise trip, an entertainment theme park…they bring wish children lots of joy that they even forget their illness. For example, a wish child wishes to attend the Champions League final.

“To-be”

To be a chief, a fireman, a Crime Scene investigator…some wish children want to be bigger and stronger to contribute to their communities. For example, a wish child wishes to be a chief in a 5 star restaurant cooking for her friends.
