Create a personal fundraising page and help grant a summer wish!
One of the tremendous outcomes of the Batkid wish was an unprecedented spike in new wish referrals. This year we will set a record for the most referrals ever in a year. We expect to grant perhaps as many as 130-140 wishes during the next three months. These wishes will cost us nearly $1MM. This is a short term crisis, but I’m hopeful also the beginning of a new normal.
Other chapters facing a surge in wishes are routinely forced to establish a waiting list for wishes. We’ve never done that, and we simply can’t start now. What that would mean is a process whereby we would seek out the “sickest” wishes children and grant their wishes first, while the others wait until we fundraise.
Will you help raise $7,500 – the average cost of one summer wish – and help make sure all our eligible kids experience the magic of a wish?
