WISH (verb): simply a hope or desire for something. For our wish children this is more than a desire – it’s an experience that can create a life- changing impact not only for the child but for families, friends, donors and sometimes entire communities. A wish can help renew the joy of life, or rather, the wholesome joy of being a kid.
