this organization keeps calling and becomes argumentative when you refuse to donate. it's too bad they are not required to check the do not call list. . Also, if you check them out on Charity Navigator, you will see that their expenses were higher than income. I really wonder if they are legitimate.

My husband made the mistake of giving these vultures money without checking them out first. Now they keep calling and I can't get them to understand that I WILL NEVER GIVE THEM MONEY!! Almost all of their money goes into fundraising. They are probably hoping that people confuse them with the Make a Wish Foundation.

There is nothing good I can say or find about this organization. Hard sell telemarketing. Few stories of 'Wishes' available online. They say they do the exact same thing as Make A Wish, but judging from this site, at least in 2008 80% of income was spent on fundraising, with 5% of expenses going to the co-founder.

That's not charity and good-works- it's a scam to make money while likely getting the locations such as Disney (specifically mentioned in the phone conversation) to pay for the hotel/admission- many airlines will poney up the airfare- so occasionally they probably do put together a 'Wish' to quantify what they do.

I prefer to stick to a more reputable organization. There are limited $ for donations these days- I'd like to know it's going where it's supposed to. They wanted to start at $1500 level of 'giving'- for $1500 I'll go to the nearest Children's Hospital and pick out a deserving child myself and pay direct out of pocket. All $1500 spent on THE CHILD.
