Kids For Wish Kids®

The Make-A-Wish® Central & South Texas Kids For Wish Kids program gives schools and organizations in central and south Texas the opportunity to sponsor wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Kids For Wish Kids is an extremely popular program for students because it is managed by the students! They are responsible for coming up with the ideas and carrying them out. Teachers and parents often serve as advisors, but ownership of the project belongs solely to the kids involved.

The program fosters the value of community service by providing students with hands-on experience in helping to grant wishes. It also provides a mechanism for building school spirit and creating additional partnerships between students and teachers outside of the classroom.

The opportunities available for fundraising activities through the Kids For Wish Kids program are endless. Anything from a parking space sale, to a dance marathon, selling links to paper chains or a student/teacher basketball game - it’s all up to the students’ imagination.   Select a fundraising activity from the list, ask us for assistance, or come up with your own!  Each activity has corresponding community service hours designated.

Make-A-Wish Kids For Wish Kids® clubs at local high schools are responsible for holding meetings and events throughout the year that raise funds and awareness for Make-A-Wish children while building a strong connection within the community. Check and see if your school has one that you can join. If not, you can start one!  Kids For Wish Kids® clubs provide avenues for leadership opportunities and community service hours.
