Light A Wish

Support Make a Wish & make (your) wish come true!

If a child can believe it’s wishes can come true, they can also believe the will get better. That is the power of the Wish Journey.

About Make-A-Wish

Every day an average of 3 families in The Netherlands get the news their child has a sever, sometimes even critical illness. Make-A-Wish wants to give strenght for the furture to ALL young patients (between 3 and 18 years of age). They do that by making their most cherished wish come true.


Wish Journey

A wish is not a fleeting gift – it’s a carefully planned journey, designed to complement a child’s medical treatment, and give them the hope, strength and joy they need to fight their illness.
The whole Wish Journey – from wish capture to building anticipation to lasting memories – aids physical and emotional healing by building strong positive experiences through the application of principles of positive psychology. This way, the Wish Journey builds resilience and helps children to better cope with their critical illness.
A wish-come-true empowers and transforms the lives of anyone who plays a part. It allows everyone involved, whether family members, volunteers, sponsors or extended communities, to experience true happiness. It gives children renewed energy and strength, brings families closer together, and
unites communities throughout the Wish Journey – not just at the point of wish realization.
