Help Make-A-Wish Restore Hope with a Wish
You can make more wishes come true by celebrating World Wish Day 2022.
By America's Charities on April 7, 2022
Every year, Make-A-Wish, the organization that grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses, celebrates World Wish Day® on April 29, the anniversary of the wish that inspired the founding of Make-A-Wish in 1980. As the countdown to World Wish Day continues all throughout April, Make-A-Wish has released new research in the form of the 2022 Wish Impact Study that provides quantitative data to lend credibility to the anecdotal feedback heard regularly from wish families. The powerful results of the Wish Impact Study add to a growing body of research demonstrating how wish-fulfillment promotes mental and emotional well-being for children and their families who are facing trauma stemming from a critical illness.
