Reviews for Make-A-Wish Arizona

Rating: 5 stars  

Make-A-Wish does an awesome job granting the "One True Wish" of children with life-threatening medical conditions and has spread beyond Arizona and the United States, to now grant wishes internationally. I have been a Volunteer Wish Granter for almost a year and a half and have already been a part of having two wishes granted with two more very close to being granted. It is a wonderful experience to meet the wish kids and their families on the initial visit and then to follow through with the wishes. The kiddos and their families are so thankful and appreciate everything Make-A-Wish does for them and normally, with the help of wish granters, go above and beyond their expectations!

I have done volunteer work for many years with other organizations. Make A Wish is by far my favorite. People ask me all the time how do I do it. Working with very ill children. I tell them mom and dad have to have them do all the bad stuff, treatments..etc. the Dr. and nurses the same. I get to being in all the fun! I am their fairy God mother. I get to grant their ONE TRUE WISH. How much better than that be. I absolutely LOVE volunteering with Make A Wish.

As someone who started out donating, then became a volunteer and Wish Granter, I can't say enough about how much I love MAWAZ. Not only do they treat the children and families who get wishes granted like celebrities but they treat us volunteers like rock starts as well! The staff at MAWAZ is like family to me. I love spending as much time as possible helping make wishes come true. I've served as a volunteer at many charities throughout AZ but this one is the greatest of them all. Thanks MAWAZ for letting me be a part of the magic!

I am currently working on 5 Wishes and love the support I get from Make-A-Wish! It is such an awesome organization and I am proud to be a volunteer for them. Seeing the look on the Wish Kids face when they find out their true wish has been granted is priceless. If you are looking for a very rewarding volunteer experience I would highly recommend Make-A-Wish!

Volunteering as a wish Granter has changed my life. The families I meet are inspiring, and Make-A-Wish Arizona does a wonderful job of pulling together all of the elements needed to fulfill children's wishes. As a former staff member, I know that every decision made is focused on doing what's best for the kids. When you support Make-A-Wish, you're doing something good for sick kids and their families NOW that will have a lasting impact, and might even help them gain the strength and courage to conquer their life-threatening medical condition. It's an incredible thing to be part of.

As a wish granter with Make A Wish there is nothing better than seeing the look on a kids face when I get to tell them their wish is coming true. I have been fortunate enough to stay in contact with my wish families and there is always something new they tell me about their wish every time I see them. It is an honor to be a part of such a wonderful organization

Being a wish granter is one of the best decisions I've ever made. The joy I get from making the one true wish of a kiddo come true is insurmountable. I've seen the power of a wish, time and time again! My first wish kid just started her first year of college, and years later, we still speak about the positive impact her wish had on not only her, but her entire tribe of supporters.

I am a wish Grantor at Make A Wish Arizona. I realize that we as volunteers are there for kids, but these kids teach us so much in return. I ask anyone that has any time to pkease donate. It will amaze you and fill your life with something you never could have imagined.

I have been a wish granter with Make a Wish for almost 10 years. I have never found an organization more in touch with the families of children with life threatening illness. I am proud to say I am associated with this Non Profit and continue to do everything to promote them as one I support wholeheartedly. I have seen first hand the results of what their mission does for these children and their families.
