Children who face lengthy periods of hospital stay often and miss out on school, activities and holiday celebrations.  To counter these feelings of isolation and loss of hope, 1Wish support many on-site events to support young patients.  Our festive volunteers from the community and partners provide a vessel of hope and fun.  Some memories that have an impact on patients and families include holidays meals, birthday parties, camps, fundraising events and so many more.    

1Wish provides gifts and memories by activating a network of resources within the communities they serve. 1Wish's unique concept of a pay it forward culture is the cornerstone of our 1Wish Hospital Enrichment Program.  With these resources, a ripple effect of new ideas, hope, compassion, and smiles are shared among patients, families and 1Wish partners.  

1Wish is honored to partner with pediatric hospital and medical organizations throughout the United States such as Phoenix Children's Hospital, Ronald Mcdonald House Charities, Kendra Kisses and so many more
