Wish it Forward Program

WIF logo 300When a wish is granted for you or a family member, you become a part of a larger family; one that understands the trials and tribulations of childhood illness in a way no one else can. You and your family’s wish journey becomes part of Make-A-Wish history. And, just because the wish has been granted, doesn’t mean the wish connection is over. We’d love to stay in touch.

Wish It Forward is a program that fosters a community of Make-A-Wish alumni, families, and staff who work together to support one another’s journeys and advance the goal of granting a wish for every eligible child.

Make-A-Wish is actively building a community of wish families and alumni in the Metro New York area by connecting people with shared experiences to create new and lasting relationships. Our alumni kids and families are our best ambassadors; by sharing the story of their journey with others they illustrate the various impacts a wish can have on a child and their family. When people understand that impact, we get closer to our goal of bringing a wish to every eligible child to keep them focused on healing.
