Our chosen charity this year is Make-A-Wish Ireland.
Make-A-Wish Ireland has one simple aim – to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to bring hope, strength, and happiness.
Since 1992, Make-A-Wish has granted wishes for more than 2,400 brave children across Ireland, including 211 wishes granted in 2018 alone. A wish granted is true magic for the child, providing respite from their normal routines of hospitals, doctors, and treatment.
Whether it’s to be a princess for a day, to meet a favourite footballer, or to have a playhouse, each wish is as unique as the child who makes it. In all possible cases, Make-A-Wish ensures that all immediate family members can participate in the child’s wish. In doing so the family can create lasting, happy memories.
Make-A-Wish does not receive any government funding and so relies overwhelmingly on the kindness of the public and business community to continue granting wishes.
Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses.
