Become a trained wish-granting volunteer!

Wish granters work in teams of two to help make wishes come true. This role involves interviewing the child and family to determine the wish, working with staff to help fulfill the wish, helping the child stay engaged while waiting for the wish to happen and throwing a wish party when the wish is granted. Time commitment varies, depending on the type of wish and number of wishes you are involved with. The wish interview and granting almost always take place in the evening or on a weekend. We are looking for volunteers who can make a long-term commitment (minimum of one year).  (Minimum age:  21)

  • We have so many amazing photos from Kinsley's wish that it's hard to pick just one, but we had to share this one of her looking like true royalty! “The entire family getting together for Kinsley was amazing," shared Kinsley's mom. "The best part for me was seeing her run around and have fun with kids again!"
