Wish Week

Wish Week

Help us deliver good news to seriously ill children.

Wish Week is an annual celebration of the magical moments created across Ireland for children living with life-threatening illnesses and the charity’s way to raise essential funds to ensure wishes can keep happening.  

Wish Week 2023 is from the 24th to the 29th of April, all across Ireland. 

To support the day, Make-A-Wish® Ireland is appealing to the public to host their own Wish Week fundraising event or to sign up to become a Wish Week 2023 volunteer to support a nationwide fundraising drive on Wish Day, Friday 28th April 2023.

As well as raising important funds to help Make-A-Wish grant magical wishes to children living with life-threatening illnesses, it raises awareness and acknowledges the bravery of wish children and their families.


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 of fundraising, Make-A-Wish wants to make 2023 the most successful year yet.
