Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. It is the largest wish-granting charity in the world, with 62 chapters in the United States and the U.S. territories of Guam and Puerto Rico. Since 1980, Make-A-Wish granted more than 200,000 wishes worldwide. A 7-year-old boy named Chris Greicius, who dreamed of becoming a police officer for a day, inspired the creation of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Officers of the Arizona Department of Public Safety and U.S. Customs made his wish come true on April 29, 1980.The Make-A-Wish Foundation is funded primarily through corporate and private donations. Requests for wishes come from parents or guardians, medical professionals, and children themselves. The fulfillment of a wish creates a magical moment for children, families, and everyone involved in a wish. It is the organization's vision that people everywhere will share the power of a wish®.
