At One Simple Wish we believe that every child deserves love, hope and joy. Every year nearly 500,000 children are impacted by abuse, neglect and trauma and spend time in our nation's foster care system. Through our innovative wish-granting platform, donors can send some love to a child who needs it. When wishes come true, kids not only have a chance to just be kids, but they can also make important connections, experience new things and find their passion.
