Kids for Wish Kids® is a program that enables students to discover philanthropy by selecting their own fundraising project and managing it from start to finish.
Students develop leadership skills, build self-esteem, learn the joy of giving and learn about teamwork while working towards a goal, making a difference in the life of a child who is fighting overwhelming odds.

You can try one of these ideas or devise a project on your own!
Wish Week is just one of the many ways that you can fundraise for Make-A-Wish. Wish Week is part of the Kids For Wish Kids® program, which enables kids K-12 to help grant the wishes of kids with life-threatening medical conditions. Kids are responsible for the program; from brainstorming fundraising ideas, to developing a plan of action and then seeing their ideas come to life. Teachers and parents often serve as advisors, but ownership of the project belongs solely to the kids involved.
Who can participate in Kids For Wish Kids?
