Wishes in Flight
Wishes in Flight® is a campaign in which we dedicate one special day to drive our city to donate money or airlines miles to help us grant more wishes for children in our community. This year, we will strive to reach our goal of raising 2 million airline miles and $35,000, but we need your help! Tune into KSNV-TV News 3 or 93.1 The Party on Thursday, August 25th, from 6:00 AM to 7:30 PM to donate money or miles to bring Wish Kids smiles. 93.1 The Party will be broadcasting live from Dave & Busters at Downtown Summerlin from 6:30 AM until 7:00 PM.
Give flight to a child's heartfelt wish
Every 3 days, Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada turns a child's wish into a life-changing experience. Wish Kids like Elann and Sophia were among the many Southern Nevada Wish Kids who traveled as part of their wish.
The Power of a Wish® can be difficult to measure in empirical terms; however, according to our Wish Impact Study, we can see how a wish experience has a profound impact on how our Wish Kids look at the future:
- 74% of wish parents observed the wish experience marked a turning point in their children's response to treatment
- 81% of parents observe an increased willingness by their Wish Kids to comply with treatment protocols
- 83% of adult Wish Kids say they experienced improved physical health and strength
Our Greatest Need
Approximately 80% of all wishes involve air travel. Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada needs more than 6 million airline miles to make this possible each year.
Donate money or airline miles to this year's Wishes in Flight campaign! You hold the ticket to a child's one true wish.
