Join us and #LightUpTheDarkness

"I believe every child should have a childhood. Make-A-Wish deal with a lot of families that don't get that experience where a child has a critically illness, so the work they do to make those lasting memories is priceless. And let's be honest, running a marathon is nothing compared to the joy it will bring to a family and a wish child."

John, #WishHero

Choose your event. #LightUpTheDarkness.

It takes a community of volunteers, fundraisers, donors and partners to revive a childhood stolen by critical illness.

Together, we have the power to light up the darkness.

Other ways to get involved

If you don't fancy taking on a physical challenge, here are some other ways you can join our community of supporters to help light up the darkness for every eligible child through the power of a wish.

Fundraising ideas

From holding a bake sale to hosting your own virtual quiz, there are lots of ways you can fundraise to grant wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Get inspired

Give a regular gift

For the price of a coffee each month, you have the power to light up the darkness, creating special memories for many more children.

Give monthly

Donate a gift

We simply couldn't grant life-changing wishes without the generosity of people, like you, who volunteer their skills, products or services.
