We started this fundraiser to help grant wishes for children battling critical illnesses.

Wish kids are some of the bravest and sweetest kids you'll ever know. They wish to work in a pickle factory, become a superhero, go snorkeling, give their baseball team new uniforms, and push all of the buttons in a tall building's elevator. Their innocence and unexpected wisdom stays with you.

A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illnesses. For many, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say, the wish experience works in concert with medicine to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically.

Right now, enough children are waiting for their wishes to fill more than seven school buses. Without wishes, they're not getting all the tools they need to fight their illnesses.

Please help by donating today.

Thank you for your support!
