The Charity

World-Wish-Day-is-April-29-Make-A-Wish-Foundation-and-WWE-John-Cena-wwemomsMake-A-Wish® grants the wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition in the United States and its territories, on average, every 38 minutes. We believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides us. It inspires us to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids we serve.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in the United States that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. In order to qualify for a wish, the child must be between the ages of 2 and a half and 18 at the time of referral. It is the child’s physician that ultimately decides if a child is eligible. The Make-A-Wish-AZorganization grants wishes through its 62 chapters located throughout the country. Make-A-Wish also operates in 47 countries around the world through 36 affiliate offices. The President and CEO of Make-A-Wish America is David A. Williams. WWE Superstar John Cena has granted the most wishes overall, with over 400. The national headquarters and founding chapter are in Phoenix, Arizona.
