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.
