Every year, Make-A-Wish grants at least 30,000 wishes worldwide and we need your help to do that in that in 2020.
The Holiday Season is a time of giving, and we want to make this one an ultra special one! We don't receive any pubic funding and are exclusively funded and powered by people like you. That means that we really need your support to prevent that any child has to battle a critical illness without the additional strength a wish provides -and we have loads of fun ideas for you!
When children are battling a critical illness, so much of normal childhood is taken away from them — it is exhausting, both emotionally and physically. A wish is something that gives children the opportunity to look outside their illness — it restores a sense of childhood back to the child and normalcy back to the family. It is also a chance for them to look into their future with hope.I want to give the gift of a wish

During her visit to Queensland, she and her family would walk and pick up rubbish along the beach to reduce plastics in the oceans. And in the hospitals, she chaired a meeting to reduce plastic usage with the staff.Read more about this incredible young lady here
