Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

 

Since 2012, Make-A-Wish Alabama has been granting wishes in every county of our state. We have created wishes to see snow, to meet a hero, to visit Walt Disney World, to swim with dolphins, to have a treehouse and hundreds more. Our goal is to give a wish to every eligible child in our state but we can’t do it alone. We rely on the help of countless volunteers, community members, staff, board members, medical professionals and others to bring the power of a wish to a child in need. Will you join us?
