April 29 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.
