April 29th is World Wish Day®, the anniversary of the wish that inspired the founding of Make-A-Wish® in 1980 and a worldwide day of gratitude to thank our donors, volunteers, medical professionals, sponsors, wish kids and families.
Across the world, millions of supporters share the vision of granting the wish of every eligible child. Some refer children, some volunteer their time and creativity as wish granters, others make a donation to fund life-changing wish experiences. Together we grant wishes – but the true power and support comes from people like you. Visit worldwishday.org to learn more
