Make-A-Wish believes that wishes improve the odds for kids fighting critical illnesses, and research proves it.* It's why we do what we do. Wishes are amazing and fun, and more than that, they inspire and have the power to change lives. Wishes help kids look past their limitations, families overcome anxiety, and entire communities experience joy.
No matter if you're turning 66, 36 or even 6...you can use your birthday to give the gift of a wish to a child who needs it most. Help transform a life, and have a birthday you'll remember forever.

Each year, more than 500 kids in central and south Texas are diagnosed with a critical illness. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey. Last fiscal year, our chapter granted 300 wishes, the most in our chapter's history. As we kick off our new fiscal year in September, we plan on beating that number. With your help we can.
