Make-A-Wish aims to grant 1,000 wishes per year and to do this we need your help. Even the smallest donation goes a long way and is used to continue our vital work.
There are many ways you can help us as an individual. Perhaps you could take on a fundraising challenge such as a marathon or a skydive; we'll be with you all the way as you prepare. Or it could be something as simple and effort-free as recycling your clothes, mobile phone and printer cartridges.
Perhaps you could persuade a community group you're involved with to support us. We're always very grateful when schools, universities, Brownie or Cub Scout packs, golf clubs and Rotary clubs choose our cause to raise money for and we're happy to advise and provide support while you're organising your event; we can even send a representative to come and talk to your group about the wishes we create.
A vital component in our fundraising is support from businesses and organisations. Could your employer or your company adopt us as a charity partner, or provide us with goods and services that we can use to help us grant our magical wishes? It's a great way to help staff to feel involved and for your organisation to take on some social responsibility, and can also involve some excellent positive publicity.
Whatever you choose to do, it's people like you who have contributed millions over the years to help create so many magical wishes.
