Make-A-Wish Michigan grants a little more than one wish per day for a child with a life-threatening medical condition. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us in everything we do. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids in our Michigan communities.
Wishes are more than just a nice thing. And they are far more than gifts, or singular events in time. Wishes impact everyone involved – wish kids, volunteers, donors, sponsors, medical professionals and communities. The impact varies. For wish kids, just the act of making their wish come true can give them the courage to comply with their medical treatments. Parents might finally feel like they can be optimistic. And still others might realize all they have to offer the world through volunteer work or philanthropy.
Whatever the odds, whatever the obstacles … wishes find a way to make the world better.“We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.” — Make-A-Wish® Mission
Make-A-Wish Michigan is the legacy of Chris Greicius, a 7-year-old boy from Phoenix. His wish to be a police officer set in motion a phenomenon that would create an unprecedented kind of charity.
HomeFirstTM Certified Communities teamed up with Make-A-Wish Michigan in January of 2014. Our hope is, by continuously raising funds, to grant at least one wish each year! Visit your community office to find out how you can get involved.
