Ryan Reynolds Shares Message of Hope

Wishes are Waiting
Join Ryan Reynolds and send wish kids a message of hope

Now more than ever, the world needs the hope of a wish. At Make-A-Wish, we believe in the power of hope, and the idea that we live in a world that can keep wishing, no matter the circumstances. For 40 years, we have provided life-changing hope, strength and joy to children with critical illnesses.

Every child deserves a childhood, but right now, more wishes are waiting than ever before. And in these challenging times, Make-A-Wish kids represent some of the most vulnerable of our population. While they wait for their wish to come true, help us do all we can to encourage them by sharing a message of hope. Together we can shine a light of hope and joy for children in their darkest days, bringing them strength for tomorrow.
