A wish come true brings lasting impact to a wish child, their family, and entire communities. Make-A-Wish kids say their wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illness, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Volunteers feel an increased sense of compassion and desire to help others in their community.
Make-A-Wish America strives to transform lives, one wish at a time. Last year, they granted 15,300 - that's a wish every 34 minutes, on average, somewhere in the United States. Approximately 27,000 children are diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition each year. Your contribution helps Make-A-Wish take one step closer to achieving the goal of granting a wish for every eligible child.
Make-A-Wish has been a proud Subaru “Share the Love” partner since 2011. Since that time, Subaru has donated more than $16.3 million, helping to grant over 1,855 wishes in the United States.
Since 2016, Subaru and our retailers have partnered with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 230,000 warm blankets, 31,000 arts and crafts kits, and thousands of messages of hope to patients fighting cancer in hospitals and treatment centers across the nation.
