Join Make-A-Wish Ireland this Wish Week to bring hope and joy to the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Make-A-Wish Ireland is a registered charity that grants wishes to children between the ages of 3 and 17 years living with life-threatening medical conditions. Over the last 30 years, Make-A-Wish has granted over 2900 wishes. These children and their families need the hope, joy and lasting memories that a wish can bring. With over 200 children still on their wish journey and after a challenging few years for fundraising, Make-A-Wish wants to make 2023 the most successful year yet.
Want to do something else? Plan your fundraiser:
Take on a challenge! The sky’s the limit –your challenge can be anything from a skydive, marathon, triathlon, swim or obstacle race.
Think outside the box for your fundraiser! From bake sales, art auctions and performing live to dying or cutting your hair. There are many ways to raise funds.
Need an excuse to get the gang back together? Why not host a quiz night, book club or community event to have some laughs and make wishes come true at the same time!
