Kids For Wish Kids
published November 2016

Kids For Wish Kids is a popular program because it is managed by kids. The program allows K-12 students to raise funds and help grant wishes for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. Students are responsible for the program from brainstorming fundraising ideas and developing plans of action, to seeing the ideas come to fruition. Teachers and parents often serve as advisors, but ownership of the project belongs solely to the kids involved. Kids and teens choose an idea for a fundraiser and then organize and manage their project from start to finish.
