We grant the wishes of children aged 3-17 in Ireland who are living with life-threatening medical conditions.



👼These little angels came up with a ‘bright’ idea to raise money for Make-A-Wish by taking part in last week’s Rainbow Run in Dun Laoghaire, and raised a fantastic €6,500! It’s amazing that they are aware how important it is to give back at such a young age #FUNdraising #ChildrenHelpingChildren

🎅Do you think it's too early for Christmas?🎅 Some children just can't wait. 🎄Help us make their wishes come true in 2017🎄 #XmasWishes

#FeelGoodFriday Tomás (7) from Cork, living with Rhabdomyosarcoma, wished to meet his hero – Roy Keane. With the help of our partner SSE Airtricity and their association with FAIreland, we were delighted to grant his wish yesterday! Tomás and his parents received a VIP tour of the Aviva Stadium before meeting Roy in one of the dressing rooms. Tomás and Roy chatted like old friends and Tomás asked Roy lots of questions about different periods in his career and life as a soccer player. Roy answered every question and wondered if Tomás was going to be a journalist when he grew up! We are indebted to SSE Airtricity and their partner FAI for making this wish come true.

If wishes can come true, then anything is possible! Want to get your Transition Year students involved in a rewarding and motivating project?

THANK YOU Cannonball Ireland and all the Cannonballers, who were so incredibly supportive of us last weekend! We are also extremely grateful to all the volunteers who helped out at each town, with a special mention to Mr John McHugh and his merry band of bucketeers who collected for Make-A-Wish Ireland at each stop along the route. You’re all heroes to us! 🏁🏎👏

Everyone who crosses the line on Oct 29th has a story to tell. This year, #TwentyThousandStories aims to empower everyday heroes to share their personal stories and motivations for running the SSE Airtricity Dublin Marathon including Barry who is running for Make-A-Wish. Barry is blessed to have two happy and healthy daughters and he wants to spread the good fortune by making a positive contribution to others who are less fortunate. Share your story here:
