Davinci Gives Back: January Charity - Make-A-Wish Utah Chapter
A wish experience can be a game-changer for a child with a critical illness.
This one belief guides us in everything we do at Make-A-Wish. It inspires us to grant life-changing wishes for children going through so much. It compels us to be creative in exceeding the expectations of every wish kid. It drives us to make our donated resources go as far as possible. Most of all, it's the founding principle of our vision to grant the wish of every eligible child.
This is our mission:
Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.
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. 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.
Make-A-Wish traces its inspiration to Chris Greicius, a child with leukemia who wished to be a police officer. In 1980, a community came together and made his wish come true. The impact of his wish was felt throughout his community and was the inspiration for what is now Make-A-Wish. Today, it is our vision at Make-A-Wish to develop the resources to grant the wish of every eligible child.
Wishes can change the odds for children fighting their illness. A wish helps kids look past their limitations, families overcome anxiety and entire communities experience joy. Most importantly, wishes can improve a child’s quality of life. Experience the power of imagination and the strength that comes from it. At Make-A-Wish, life-changing wishes start with you.
