The work of Make-A-Wish is inspiring people to fulfill a child’s dream of meeting Santa Claus. The nonprofit organization has helped children all over the world, fulfilling their wishes and transforming their lives in the process. The organization started out as a small charity in Phoenix, Arizona and now operates in almost fifty countries. You can support the work of this wonderful organization by donating or volunteering.
The work of Make-A-Wish started in the United States and has now spread to many countries, including Canada. In 1993, the organization established an international arm to serve five countries outside of the U.S. Today, it serves more than 50 countries across five continents. The organization in the United States is made up of 61 local chapters, and since its inception has granted more than 490,000 wishes.
The charity is known for granting wishes to children in difficult circumstances, and its work continues to grow. In India, Make-A-Wish has nine offices, and in the last year, 185 wishes were granted. In April, Sanchin Tendulkar, known in India as the Master Blaster, granted the wishes of four children. He joined the children in arm wrestling and performed a song for them. These efforts continue to change lives and inspire a generation to reach their full potential
