Kids For Wish Kids is a Make-A-Wish® program that enables local children to do it all — organize, raise funds and manage their programs with support from parents or teacher advisors. This hands-on experience helps kids to see first-hand how they can impact another kid’s life by helping grant his or her wish.
As kids, you are responsible for forming committees, coming up with fundraising ideas and carrying them out. Teachers and parents often serve as advisors, but ownership of the group belongs solely to you and the other kids involved.
The Kids For Wish Kids program helps to increase awareness of the Make-A-Wish mission and involves more people in helping to grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Kids For Wish Kids is managed by kids like you!
But Kids For Wish Kids does much more than that — it fosters the value of community service by providing you with hands-on experience in helping to grant wishes through your local Make-A-Wish chapter. It also provides a mechanism for building school spirit and creating an additional partnership between children and teachers outside of the classroom.
The opportunities available for fundraising activities through the Kids For Wish Kids program are endless — anything from a bake sale or penny war to a dance marathon or student/teacher basketball game — it's all up to your imagination.
If you want to join in the fun and raise money to help grant wishes, please download our Kids For Wish Kids Toolkit or contact:
