At Southern Children’s Wish Foundation, our mission is simple: Our job is to grant wishes for children with a life-threatening condition and also provide assistance to those who love them. Our staff is made up mostly of folks in the educational field. We care about every child’s welfare. When a wish comes true for a child, it can help them contend better with the situation they are in. They may feel happier, more energetic and even stronger. The wish can uplift the child’s spirit and could be a defining period in their fight against the disease and hopefully recovery. We put children first, giving them what they need to grow up and be healthy and happy. On average, it takes about 200 donations to grant one “Cool Wish” to a child. Every donation collected stays right here in the United States to help our children with their struggles.
