                     them: classmates or other kids in the community. Local children
                     do it all – organize, raise funds and manage their own program
                      with support from parents or teacher advisors. This hands-on
                      experience shows children how their commitment and generosity
                      can impact another child’s life and help grant a wish.
                     Here’s your chance to have tons of fun while helping to make
                   dreams come true for kids with life-threatening medical condi-
    tions. As a Kids For Wish Kids® volunteer, you can coordinate a fundraiser to
help sponsor wishes for Wish Kids in your community. For more information on the
