About Us

Every 38 minutes Make-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories. We believe that a wish experience can be a life-changing opportunity. This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.
