About Make A Wish Foundation
To grant wishes to children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are battling a life threatening condition.
The result is fantasy into reality. A wish can provide a positive, often once in a lifetime experience, for the child and its family. Focusing the child's attention away from the difficult routine of medical treatment and consultations, and the daily struggle against a life-threatening condition. The promise of a wish can have a remarkable effect on a sick child and has enormous impact on everyone close to them.
A wish gives a child something to look forward to through their many months of treatment.
Help make wishes come true!! We need Wish Day Volunteers to help us on Friday the 9th March 2018. Wish Day takes place across shopping centres and towns all over Ireland. It is our biggest national fundraising day and with no government funding we rely on events like this to grant magical wishes. Can you help us a for a few hours?
