When the pandemic hit last year, everything changed...everything except the mission of Make-A-Wish. Our mission of creating life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses became even more important.
This year, we've all had a glimpse of what it feels like to wait for hope. Our wish kids have been used to waiting—for a doctor's appointment, for a treatment, or for the day they are in considered in remission. But the moment there is something to look forward to, everything begins to change.
And we've learned that passion can overcome a pandemic!
Our staff, our volunteers, our donors, and especially our wish kids have that passion. Together, we've created hope through life-changing wishes. Instead of travel wishes, our kids are choosing play sets, fishing boats, puppies, swimming pools, shopping sprees and pop-up campers.
Don't wait for hope. Create it.
