Grant life-changing wishes

A beacon of hope

At Make-A-Wish International, we stand as a beacon of hope. Every wish we grant is a testament to the sparks of hope, transforming wishes into reality and instilling a renewed sense of optimism. For wish children, the journey is not just about fulfilling a cherished dream; it is a transformative experience that empowers them to believe in the extraordinary power within themselves. Each wish serves as a beacon, letting wish children know that a compassionate global community stands with them.

Our mission extends beyond wish-granting, as we actively collaborate with medical professionals and experts to provide holistic support to wish children. The warmth of our community, the support of donors and volunteers, and the boundless dedication of our team together create impactful wishes.

Gold ribbon – the symbol of solidarity


The gold ribbon is more than a symbol; it’s a universal sign of solidarity and commitment in the fight against childhood cancer. As the emblem of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the gold ribbon represents the courage, resilience, and undying hope of wish children and their families. At Make-A-Wish International, the golden ribbon weaves through our mission, connecting us with a global community that stands united in its pursuit of compassion and change.

By donning this powerful symbol, we join hands in a shared pledge to raise awareness, foster empathy, and amplify the voices of those impacted by childhood cancer. The gold ribbon is not just a token but a beacon that lights the path to a world where every eligible child’s wish is granted.

Unveiling the Wish Journey


Unveiling the wish journey at Make-A-Wish International is an invitation to witness the extraordinary transformation that occurs when hope, compassion, and imagination unite. It is a journey of love and dedication, where the dreams of wish children are brought to life, one wish at a time.

From the moment a wish is born in the heart of a child living with a critical illness, our dedicated team of wish-granters, volunteers, and supporters spring into action. Through careful planning and collaboration with medical professionals, we curate personalized wish experiences that go above and beyond to exceed expectations.

The wish journey is a testament to the power of human connection, as wish children and their families embark on unforgettable adventures, unforgettable encounters, and life-changing moments. Whether it’s meeting their favorite superhero, exploring distant lands, or fulfilling a dream they thought was out of reach, wishes instill a renewed sense of joy and hope in the hearts of everyone involved.
