Wishes & More supports children with terminal or life-threatening conditions, as well as their families, by helping to fulfill wishes, grant scholarships, provide extraordinary experiences, and build memorials throughout Minnesota. The potential that one of their dreams will come true can help foster hope, strength, and courage as the children fight their conditions.
At each initial wish meeting, Wishes & More volunteers bring along custom wish bags for the children and their siblings to help make them more comfortable with the interview process. Each bag contains small, hand-selected gifts based on the child’s age, gender, and the interests they mention on the application. The wish bag can also provide rare moments of excitement for children when their parents are stretched financially due to ongoing medical bills, and can reduce tense dynamics between siblings who may feel overlooked.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help provide gift bags to children facing terminal or life-threatening conditions. If G-Team members raise $350, then Wishes & More can distribute custom wish bags to five children. Each additional $70 raised will fund a wish bag for another child.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100 percent off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
Wishes & More
Wishes & More fulfills the wishes of youth up to age 19 who have a terminal or life-threatening illness to help bring joy into lives that have become burdened with fear and trauma. Wishes can range from items, such as nursery equipment or new cars, to once-in-a-lifetime experiences, including a trip to South Africa for the FIFA World Cup, a family ski vacation, and the chance to meet a personal hero, be it Garfield cartoonist Jim Davis or Jackie Chan. Wishes & More also provides $1,000 memorial-fund grants to the parents of children who did not live to experience their wish and $1,000 Scholarship of Hope grants to fund young people's transition to higher education following a terminal diagnosis and recovery.
