Galaxy of Hope

Everyday people give their time to change lives for hundreds of wish kids across Illinois. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence and anxiety with an overwhelming hope. This would not be possible without the generosity of our wish granters and volunteers. On this page, you will find a list of milestones: wish granters who have given children renewed energy twenty-five, fifty, or even one hundred times. Volunteers who reach these milestones will be inducted into the Galaxy of Hope each year during National Volunteer Week. Thank you for the volunteers who have given their time to change a child's life!
