You Showed the World How Strong We Are Together


Make-A-Wish® is thrilled to announce that we have been named a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title-holder for the Largest wish-granting organization. This new title was announced at the
Make-A-Wish Walk For Wishes® event in Baltimore, Maryland on World Wish Day®, April 29th.

“This designation recognizes so many people who have worked tirelessly over the years to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses,” said David Williams, president and CEO of
Make-A-Wish America. Because of dedicated people like you, Make-A-Wish has granted nearly 450,000 worldwide and more than 1,800 wishes this April alone.

Wishes take muscle and give kids the emotional, mental and physical strength to fight their illnesses. We appreciate the collective force of doctors, donors, volunteers and supporters who made this achievement possible. Today 1 out of every 2 eligible kids receive a wish, the majority of whom go on to beat their illnesses. To learn more, signup for email updates and follow Make-A-Wish on social media. With your help we can grant the wish of every eligible child.
