Wishes granted with your help
A wish granted is true magic for the child, providing respite from their normal routines of hospitals, doctors and treatment. Wherever possible, we invite the whole immediate family to share in the wish, to experience moments of joy and make memories to last a life-time.
We have granted over 2,000 wishes in Ireland, and every wish is unique. Here are just a few of their stories. If you would like to help grant more wishes like these, please donate now.
