Make-A-Wish has the unique ability to transform a child and their family's life during some of their most difficult times, as a wish creates
an opportunity for hope and the ability to experience life beyond their illness. Sure, wishes are amazing and fun, but when a wish comes true, it creates strength, hope and transformation. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy, and anxiety with hope. Wishes help kids look past the limitations of their illness. Most importantly, wishes can improve a child's quality of life, giving them a better chance of recovering.

Wishes usually fall into one of four categories: I wish to go, I wish to be, I wish to have, I wish to meet. In an effort to alleviate any possible stress to the family, Make-A-Wish covers all expenses related to making the wish come true. An average wish costs $7,500. We are proud to share that 84% of every dollar raised goes to our wish-granting program granting wishes to local kids across Nebraska. We also engage in an extensive outreach program to keep the public informed of our foundation and mission. This includes visiting hospitals, clinics, doctors' offices and social workers across the state of Nebraska.
