Every year, Make-A-Wish, the organization that grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses, celebrates World Wish Day on April 29, the anniversary of the wish that inspired the founding of Make-A-Wish in 1980. As the countdown to World Wish Day begins, Make-A-Wish is launching a bold, fundraising-focused campaign titled “Don’t Wait for Hope. Create it.”
The inspiration for “Don’t Wait for Hope. Create it.” stems from the fact that wish families have been some of the hardest hit by the pandemic. Feelings of fear and isolation have become commonplace for everyone, but they are often felt deepest by the most vulnerable members of the population, including children with critical illnesses. Now more than ever, wishes can bring hope, joy and a sense of normalcy back into the lives of wish kids and their families. “Don’t Wait for Hope. Create it.” empowers individuals and corporations to donate to make life-changing wishes possible for children who are waiting for their wishes to come true. WWE and Make-A-Wish are aiming to create hope for wish kids everywhere this year. Visit wish.org/WWE for ways you can help.
