Mission:

Angelwish was created to help busy people grant the holiday and birthday wishes of children living with chronic illnesses. In 2010, after 10 years of focusing on HIV/AIDS, Angelwish expanded its mission to include children living with chronic illnesses such as asthma, diabetes and kidney disease. Angelwish achieves its mission by ensuring that 100% of individual donations are used for program services and that those funds are extended, where possible, to incorporate an educational component giving young people a hands on lesson in philanthropy. By utilizing the Internet, Angelwish has developed a unique approach to community service. By performing on-line "digital philanthropy" donors are able to assist the large number of local area children living with HIV/AIDS in a convenient and rewarding manner. Angelwish also plans to organize various external events in a move to involve a great number of individuals from the corporate sector.

Results:

Over 130,000 wishes valued at over $2.8M have been distributed.

Target demographics:

Families living near or under the poverty line that are dealing with chronic illnesses such as asthma, diabetes, hiv/aids.
