World Wish Day is about all of us, around the globe, coming together to help transform lives with every wish.

That is why this World Wish Day, we want to recognize your support. The first 250 supporters who meet or exceed one of the giving goals below will receive a limited edition t-shirt, as our way of saying thank you for your support!

For children battling a critical illness, a wish is not just a dream. A wish-come-true can be a turning point in their lives. It can give children the emotional and physical strength to keep going – to fight harder against their illness. Wishes allow children and their families to focus on the possibilities of tomorrow and not on the challenges of today.

Join us throughout the month of April, in honor of World Wish Day® on 29 April, as we celebrate the hundreds of thousands of life-changing wishes that have been granted and the thousands still to come.

World Wish Day

World Wish Day Logo
Chris Greicius

29 April is World Wish Day, an annual day of recognition and celebration of the wish granted to Chris Greicius in 1980 that inspired the creation of Make-A-Wish and its mission. Since then, the Make-A-Wish community has grown to over 45,000 volunteers and 30,000 wishes globally every year.

That is a wish every 17 minutes.

We could never do this alone.

We want to thank the donors, volunteers and doctors that every day help us make the impossible possible for these children. Together, we can give children the strength to fight, to get better – to grow up.

Join us this World Wish Day, and help us continue to transform the lives of children with critical illnesses.
