Make-A-Wish® Hawaii grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.  We believe that wishes are good medicine – allowing children fighting unimaginable battles to think beyond illness and start dreaming big.  Since the founding of our chapter in 1982, Make-A-Wish Hawaii has granted over 900 wishes to Hawaii keiki.

Each year, 100 local children are newly diagnosed with a life threatening medical condition and our goal is to reach each and every one of them with the power of a wish.  All of our fundraising efforts benefit local wish children and all proceeds remain right here in the State of Hawaii – thank you for helping make wishes come true!
