Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK is a charity with a single purpose – we grant magical wishes to children and young people aged 3-17 fighting life-threatening conditions.
•Make-A-Wish has granted more than 8,000 magical wishes over more than 26 years. We know that our wishes transform lives!
•Over 20,000 children in the UK are living with a life-threatening condition, a figure validated by research commissioned by Make-A-Wish. At a human level, we believe few things can be more important, or more deserving, than giving a seriously ill child the chance to have their wish come true, with all the hope, expectation and happiness that brings.
•For many families the Make-A-Wish memory can be the last happy memory they have of their child having fun in a magical world, surrounded by family and friends – rather than memories of days and weeks of painful treatments and hospitalisation. The memory of the wish may be of their child laughing and enjoying being a princess or zoo keeper for the day or meeting a favourite celebrity. In years to come, the family can look back and remember that special time.
•Make-A-Wish is expert in wishgranting; it is all that we do, each and every day. •This year we will be granting over 1,000 wishes, and we need to raise £7 million to achieve this.
We have a Ultimate Miss Charity title up for grabs to which the girl who raises the most money for the Make A Wish foundation will win, Within the past three years we have raised over £71,000 for charity, Proving that we support beauty with a purpose.
Not only is the money raised amazing, the awareness created is equally brilliant.
Each girl learns the values and importance of being a good person along with having fun doing so.
Last year our girls organised a number of fantastic events including two finalists doing a 13,000ft sky dive, seven finalists Absailing down the Europa Hotel Belfast, one walking on hot coals and many participating in street collections and charity fashion shows!
THIS YEAR we are aiming to raise as much money as possible for the Make A Wish Foundation along with having lots of fun.
