Kids For Wish Kids®

Wish Kids

Kids For Wish Kids® is a Make-A-Wish® program that enables students to discover philanthropy by selecting their own fundraising project and managing it from start to finish, with little or no help from their teachers. Students develop leadership skills, build self-esteem and learn about teamwork while working towards a final goal, making a difference in the life of a child who is fighting overwhelming odds.

Kids For Wish Kids program objectives:

  • Increase awareness among children and teenagers about the mission of Make-A-Wish® Nebraska
  • Encourage young people to become actively involved in fulfilling wishes through Make-A-Wish® Nebraska
  • Foster the value of community service, using this program as a hands-on learning experience for children
  • Create school spirit and help students learn how to work together for a common goal

Project Ideas:

  • Organize a holiday party, a dance, a bowl-a-thon or walk-a-thon
  • Organize a bake sale or a carwash
  • Sell Make-A-Wish® Holiday Cards

You can try one of these ideas or devise a project on your own!
