Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington

Issues: Children & Youth, Health

Location: 811 First Avenue, Suite 520 Seattle WA 98104 USA

Mission: Make-A-Wish Alaska and Washington grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Since our inception in 1986, our local chapter has granted wishes to more than 5,100 children. This year, we will grant approximately 300 wishes to local children throughout Alaska and Washington. A child’s most heartfelt wish may vary from a family trip to Hawaii, to the gift of a backyard playset, to the chance to be a superhero for a day. Regardless of the dream, each wish strengthens family bonds, enriches community spirit, and makes a life-changing impact on the emotional and physical health of a critically-ill child.

I am a student in the Certification Program for Fundraising Management at the University of Washington Tacoma. We were assigned to bring to class an example of a website that effectively clearly displays what they do, who they serve, their results, history, mission, supporting statistics and budget. I was quite taken by the creative annual report that not only told the story of a child, but creatively provided valuable statistics that donors want to see in a simple effective manner.
Congratulations you are my choice for the top website award!
Thanks for what you do and how you convey that message.

PS My neighbors and friends lost 2 sons to cancer within a 5 year span. Both were recipients of their wish. There is nothing so devastating then seeing a child suffer, and there is nothing so touching then seeing that sick child live their wish.
