JOIN THE WORLDSM
On April 29th, Make-A-Wish® celebrates World Wish Day®, marking the day Chris Greicius received his wish to be a police officer for a day, inspiring the creation of Make-A-Wish and its global wish granting mission.
Since Chris' wish in 1980, more than 300,000 children around the world have had their one-true-wish granted by Make-A-Wish. This year Make-A-Wish® Canada is celebrating 30 years of granting over 5000 magical wishes to Canadian children with life-threatening medical conditions.

HELP MAKE WISHES COME TRUE
You can help us make a child's wish come true today!
Our mission at Make-A-Wish Canada is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
For a child with a life-threatening medical condition, a wish granted means so much more than the wish itself.
A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical conditions. For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses.
In celebration of World Wish Day, please give generously to help children like Chris experience the joy of a wish.
