Give our kids flight

More than 70 percent of all wishes granted involve travel.

When you support our Wishes in Flight® program, you help wish kids take flight.

We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

Who is eligible?

A child with a life-threatening medical condition who has reached the age of 2½ and is younger than 18 at the time of referral is potentially eligible for a wish.

Read more on eligibility criteria for a potential wish child.

Who can refer a child?

Medical professionals, parents, legal guardians and potential wish kids can initiate the referral process.

Find out how to refer a child if you don't fit this criteria, or if the child lives outside of the United States and its territories.
