Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana does the invaluable work of fulfilling the wishes of children with critical illness with the help of generous donors and passionate supporters.
When you support Make-A-Wish, you’re helping to provide critical, emotional support to families and children who are dealing with critical illnesses. Whether you’re an individual or a business owner, there are many ways you and your employees can begin supporting Make-A-Wish.
Volunteering is a great way to support Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana and is probably the first thing that most people think of. There are several different ways you or your businesses can get involved with volunteering.
Assist With A Wish Project: If you have skilled knowledge in areas like carpentry, electricity, and building trades, you could be a great asset in helping make a project wish come true for a child. Make-A-Wish is in constant need of people skilled in trades to help build wish projects from playsets to pools and beyond.
Make Celebration Boxes: If building treehouses isn’t where your skills lie, celebration boxes may be more your speed. Celebration boxes are a collection of a wish child’s favorite snacks, games, and toys which they can enjoy on their wish trip. Boxes can be compiled anytime, anywhere, and can be shipped directly to a wish kid!
Throw A Wish Reveal Presentation: For some wishes, a child learns their wish is coming true during a special Wish Reveal Presentation. A wish reveal can be anything from a parade in the wish kid’s honor to a scavenger hunt and beyond!
Be A Wish Granter: If your skill lies in building one-on-one connections with people, you may be a good candidate for a wish granter. Make-A-Wish needs individuals who are willing to make phone calls and complete paperwork to connect wish kids, their families, businesses, and others in the community.
Monetary donations are a great way to support Make-A-Wish. No matter what size donation, every dollar matters when it comes to bring the wish of a child to fruition. You can make a one-time contribution or set up recurring donations to give throughout the year.
If you’re a business owner, you could also consider donating resources — like lumber or plumbing supplies or labor to help construct a wish project. If you operate a unique business, you could also consider donating tickets to your events or other one-of-a-kind opportunities that can be a part of a child’s wish experience.
If you want to make a greater impact for Make-A-Wish than simply donating by yourself, consider organizing a fundraiser. Fundraisers can be as simple as donating the proceeds from a lemonade stand to asking for online donations in honor of your birthday. The support of passionate members of the community rallying their networks helps grant wishes in the community!
