Meet the courageous wish kids

Wish kids are asked the question: if you could be anything, go anywhere, meet anyone or receive anything, what would that be? Their answers are incredibly inspiring.

A wish is more than a wish

It’s a powerful psychological intervention that strengthens not only the children and parents facing critical illness but everyone connected to that child: their siblings and extended family, their teachers and classmates, their care team, volunteers, donors, and the broader community.

Women for Wishes

Last year, the inaugural Women for Wishes program inspired a diverse community of women from across Canada to be ambassadors to help Make-A-Wish raise $1 million dollars. Thanks to our participants, we reached our goal! Become part of the 2024 movement and help us smash our next $1 million dollar target, and grant wishes to children from coast to coast who are living with critical illnesses.
