Wish Kids Through the Ages Part 1

Jaxston, Make-A-Wish Hawaii
How do I feel less lonely, more connected and more in charge of my own future? These are common worries that wish kids express, regardless of age. And I’d venture a guess that you have asked yourself at least one of these questions in your own life, even if you’ve never been seriously ill.

4 Wish Kids Who Love Science

Delilah, Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area, scuba diving
Delilah coasts through the water, her flippers propelling her forward. Colorful fish and coral pass beneath her as she concentrates on breathing through her regulator. Being submerged in the water feels like seeing the world for the first time. It’s a little nerve-wracking, but she knows that she has Steve right beside her to show her what to do.

The wind whips out Kaheem’s cape as he surveys his city. The people of Washington, DC, are in trouble – he can feel it. There are evildoers afoot! Luckily for them, they have Super Kaheem to come to the rescue.

6 Ways to Stand Out as an Intern

Make-A-Wish Oklahoma, interns
When I started my copywriting internship at Make-A-Wish, I had no clue what I was getting myself into. I had never interned outside of school before, completed self-paced work projects, or been in a place with more than 20 employees. I felt utterly unfit for the office environment, even though I’d be doing something I loved.

3 Kids Who Wished For Winter

Avery, Make-A-Wish America, Central and Northern Florida, Julie Richards Photography
Many wish kids dream of going on warm summer vacations, but a select few break that mold. Instead of sunny days on the beach or rides in a theme park, they dream of penguins, snowmen and skiing. The restorative power of winter gives these wish kids a chance to recuperate, and the wishes become even more powerful when they allow kids to experience winter for the very first time.
