Season of Wishes

Season of Wishes

Rally your co-workers, clients, family and friends to grant wishes this season.

The Season of Wishes – a time defined by stories of giving and giving back – is finally here. During this season, we highlight the incredible children whose true and heartfelt wish was to help others.

In honor of these incredible children, we hope you and your company will join us in granting the wishes of so many deserving children right here where we live and work. Bring your employees together to make dreams a reality and help give so many children the gifts of Hope, Strength and Joy this holiday season.

Corporate Holiday Ideas

Share the Power of a Wish® by helping to make a wish come true for a child in your community. As part of this program, you may be able to connect to your impact by hosting a wish child and their family.

Wishmakers at Work
Host a holiday party or plan a holiday competition that will benefit Make-A-Wish. We’ll help you to develop a creative campaign and motivate and inspire your team with stories of resilient wish kids who wished to pay it forward.

Casual for a Cause

Get your co-workers to go casual this season by wearing denim in exchange for donations to Make-A-Wish. Jazz this campaign up with an ugly sweater day or other holiday themed outfit challenges. We’ll provide you with fundraising materials, a website, and ongoing support to help you reach your goals.
