A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a critical illness. This one belief guides us in everything we do at Make-A-Wish®. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve. It compels us to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible. Most of all, it's the founding principle of our vision to grant the wish of every eligible child.
A wish isn't just nice, it's necessary for the improved mental and physical well-being of children and their families.
A wish creates an indomitable spirit within them to help sustain him or her through extremely difficult times, in hopes that miracles can be achieved. Make-A-Wish Southern Florida grants a wish every 14 hours, every day of the year, at an average cost of $6,000.
