To Grant the Wish of Every Eligible Child

To Grant the Wish of Every Eligible Child

Granting a wish has so many positive effects. Being able to forget about the illness for a day gives wish children and their families hope and strength for the future. We are committed to giving this hope and strength to every child around the world who is living with a critical illness.

Wish Journey

A wish is not a fleeting gift – it’s a carefully planned journey, designed to complement a child’s medical treatment, and give them the hope, strength and joy they need to fight their illness.

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 wishes are often connected to a great experience, or even special memories. For example, a wish child might wish to have a computer to attend online classes for school.

“To-meet”

To meet a celebrity, a YouTuber, a streamer… These wishes are often an inspiration, or bring lots of happiness to a wish child. For example, a wish child may wish to meet their favourite YouTuber who specializes in baking.

“To-go”

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

“To-be”

To be a chef, 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 might wish to be a chef in a 5 star restaurant, cooking for their friends and family.
