Mission Monday: Make-A-Wish Mississippi

Make-A-Wish MississippiA wish experience can be a life-changer for a child with a life-threatening medical condition.

This one belief guides and inspires the mission of Make-A-Wish, allowing children to be granted their wishes in a creative way that exceeds their expectations and allows donations to be fully utilized.

Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved – wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.
