Kids For Wish Kids®

The Kids For Wish Kids® is a Make-A-Wish® Tri-Counties program that enables students to discover philanthropy by selecting their own fundraising project and managing it from start to finish.

Students develop leadership skills, build self-esteem, learn the joy of giving and learn about teamwork while working towards a goal, making a difference in the life of a child who is fighting overwhelming odds.

Students help make wishes come true.

Program Objectives

  • Increase awareness among children and teenagers about the Make-A-Wish mission
  • Encourage young people to become actively involved in fulfilling wishes
  • Foster the value of community service, using this program as a hands-on learning experience for children
  • Create school spirit and help students learn how to work together for a common goal

Project Ideas:

  • Organize a holiday party, a dance, a bowl-a-thon or walk-a-thon
  • Organize a bake sale or a carwash
  • Collect airline miles for wishes
  • Host a toy drive

You can try one of these ideas or devise a project on your own!

Students can also host a November Macy’s Believe  letter writing Campaign. Macy’s invites believers of all ages to bring their letters to Santa to their local Macy’s, and for each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million. Letters  are written in November and delivered to a local Macy’s on Believe Day. E-mail rneryynab@gev-pbhagvrf.jvfu.bet to request a Believe Day packet.
