Please help bring messages of hope to “Wish Kids.” Make-A-Wish has provided life-changing hope, strength, and joy to children with critical illnesses for over 40 years.

We just learned that more wishes are on hold than ever before. Make-A-Wish kids represent some of the most vulnerable among us. While they wait for their wish to come true, let’s help us encourage them by sharing a message of hope. 

These are a few of the awesome Wish Kids: Alan, Age 4 (Fig 1); Naja, Age 13 (Fig 2); Bettirose, Age 14 (Fig 3)

How to Bring Messages of Hope to Wish Kids Today:

Step 1: Create a message, video, photo, song, dance —whatever you can imagine — sharing a message of hope.

Step 2: Post to any social media channel, tag @MakeAWish (@MakeAWishAmerica on Instagram) and use the hashtags #WishesAreWaiting and #HVArtsDailyDose

Step 3: Tag and invite two or more of your friends to join in.
