About this fund
A fund by Make A Wish
Right now, more than 60,000 children across the UK have been diagnosed with a critical condition, changing their lives and the lives of their families forever.
For them, the joy of childhood is brought to an abrupt end with treatment plans, appointments and worry taking over. The power of a wish revives a childhood stolen by critical illness. It brings light and joy to children and their loved ones, leaving a profound and lasting impact on all their lives. But Make-A-Wish UK can’t be that light for everyone.
We have 503 children desperately waiting for their wish. Some have been waiting for years. For others, time is running out. By World Wish Day on April 29th, we want to raise enough money to grant every single wish that’s waiting – across every corner of the UK.
Together, we have the power to light up the darkness.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Make-A-Wish suffered a 40% drop in income with almost 2000 wishes forced to be put on hold.
Right now, 503 wishes are still waiting to be granted. That’s 503 childhoods stolen by critical illness. 503 families whose lives have been changed forever.
Some of those 503 children have been waiting for years, and some may not have long left. We don’t want them to wait any longer.
Help us raise £1.25 million by World Wish Day (April 29th) to grant the wish of every child waiting and bring light and joy back to children and their loved ones.
