Making Wishes Come True
Currently Have a Heart is raising money to make seriously ill children's wishes come true.
For 20,000 children in the UK their childhood isn't about having fun and playing with friends. These children suffer from a life-threatening illness, and their lives are dominated by pain, fear, worry and endless medical treatments. But by granting their magical wish, we can give them a moment that takes them away from what they're going through.
Whether they want to be a soldier, policeman or fireman for the day; go swimming with dolphins; drive fast in a racing car; be a princess for the day; meet their favourite celebrity or visit Mickey in Disneyland, wishes are as varied as a child's imagination.
By helping us to raise money for the Have a Heart Appeal, together we can make hundreds more wishes come true.
A study by Make-A-Wish has shown that 77% of parents said that the wish improved their child's attitude and outlook on life, with nearly a third seeing an improvement in their child's physical health after their wish was granted.
Have a Heart is an appeal operated by Global Charities, a registered charity in England & Wales (1091657) & Scotland (SC041475).
