Kids For Wish Kids®

What is Kids For Wish Kids?

A program that allows local children to do it all – organize, raise funds, and manage their programs that help grant wishes for kids with life-threatening medical conditions.

Kids For Wish Kids® is a Make-A-Wish® program that is beneficial not only to the children who will receive the gift of a wish, but also to the students who make those wishes possible. Individuals and groups create ideas for fundraisers and then organize and manage their fundraisers from start to finish.  


Objectives

Students develop leadership skills, build self-esteem, learn the joy of giving and learn about teamwork while working towards a goal, making a difference in the life of a child who is fighting overwhelming odds.

  • Increase awareness among children and teenagers about the Make-A-Wish mission.
  • Encourage young people to become actively involved in fulfilling wishes.
  • Foster the value of community service, using this program as a hands-on learning experience for children.
  • Create school spirit and help students learn how to work together for a common goal
