What Can A Child Wish For?

The child's imagination is always the driving force in determining, designing and coordinating a life-altering wish experience.

While most wish requests fall into five major categories, the possibilities are endless because wish kids are so creative and inspired by the chance to have a wish experience:

  • I wish to go …
    Some Make-A-Wish® kids want to travel to their favorite theme park, while others want to visit an exotic beach, go on a cruise, see snow for the first time or attend a major sporting event or concert.
  • I wish to be …
    Children search the depths of their imagination when they wish to be someone for a day – a fireman, a police officer, a model or a superhero.
  • I wish to meet …
    Around 1,000 wish kids each year meet their favorite athlete, recording artist, television personality, movie star, politician or other public figure.
  • I wish to have …
    Children sometimes wish for a special gift, such as a computer, a tree house, a shopping spree or something they have wanted for a long time.
  • I wish to give …
    Some wish kids use their wish to make the world better – raising funds, helping improve their school or celebrating a holiday for their family are just a few of the ways wish kids have helped others.

Latest Status Update

  • This past Monday evening, we had the honor of sharing an emotional yet extremely heartwarming evening with the incredible team at Varsity Home Service: Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning. This company truly understands and values the gift of giving back to the members of their community and by doing so, they are helping to grant the wish of 7 year-old Samuel from Lake Ronkonkoma who battles a severe seizure disorder. Samuel, who loves Woody and Buzz Lightyear, has made his most heartfelt wish to meet his favorite characters at the magical Walt Disney World Resorts. Due to the incredible support of Varsity Home Service, Samuel's wish will be coming true this upcoming September! Varsity Home Service also presented former wish recipient, Kyle, with a beach terrain wheelchair so that he can comfortably enjoy time at the beach with his family and friends. Thank you to our friends at Mary's Pizza & Pasta of Islip Terrace for hosting such a beautiful event.
