Our Mission

Granting Magical Wishes for little Texans with life-threatening conditions since 1982.

"When a kid gets a wish, it makes them feel like they are important. It gives them hope that good things can happen to htem. By donating money, you can help a lot of kids get a wish too!" ~ Ashley Irwin, Wish kid, age 10

A Wish With Wings

Since first opening our doors in 1982, a Wish with Wings has granted over 1,400 Magical Wishes to families and children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions. While the most frequent wish request is for a magical family vacation to Disney World in Orlando, Florida, other wishes are as unique and individual as the children themselves (such as one young girl's wish to "pet a baby cheetah"). Some children wish for a shopping spree to buy toys, clothes and electronic games, while other wish to meet a famous celebrity or favorite sports figure. Other children simply wish for a birthday party during a lengthy hospitalization, a bedroom makeover, or perhaps a trip to Sea World or Hawaii to swim with dolphins. No matter what their special wish, our fervent hope is that no child's wish is left unfulfilled due to lack of funding.

Each year, well over half of our wish children are referrals through child life specialists, physicians, and nurses at Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth.
