Support Make-A-Wish with Savoo

Fulfilling wishes is what the selfless people at Make-A-Wish do for children with critical illnesses daily. The dreams of children are incredibly precious. Granting wishes goes beyond a single moment; it continues long afterwards, creating happy memories for the entire family. Whether the latest must-have toy, football match day tickets or a family trip to Lapland, the wishes they grant provide a much-needed escape from the gruelling daily reality of a life defined by ongoing treatments, endless hospital stays and critical illness. They bring joy, healing, and strength during their toughest times.

Make-A-Wish only exists because of the generous support of the general public and businesses, and now you can make a free donation just by claiming a saving from Savoo between 29th April and 5th May.

What is World Wish Day?

World Wish Day celebrates the anniversary of the founding of Make-A-Wish. In 1980, a seven-year-old boy called Chris Greicius was being treated for leukaemia in America. He dreamed of becoming a police officer one day, so members of Chris' local community rallied around to make his wish come true – just days before he died.

His initial wish created a movement that would transform millions of lives. Make-A-Wish celebrates that first wish on "World Wish Day" on April 29th every year.

World Wish Day is an opportune time to read the inspiring stories of brave children who have had their wishes granted. People celebrate the day in various ways, including fundraising events and sharing wishes with friends and family.

You can help to make life-changing wishes come true beyond World Wish Day. Raise even more money for Make-A-Wish by setting up a Savoo account and selecting them as your chosen charity. Your free donations for Make-A-Wish will build up every time you save money on your online shopping.

About Make-A-Wish

Make-A-Wish UK was established by six volunteers in 1986 and is part of the broader Make-A-Wish Foundation, which has a presence in nearly 50 countries. The charity believes that no child’s life should be defined by sickness and grants wishes to children aged 3 to 17 who have been diagnosed with a critical illness. Every child in the UK fighting a critical illness can be nominated for a life-changing wish, with approximately 1,000 wishes granted yearly.

Childhood illness doesn’t just affect the child, it has a lasting impact on the lives of the loved ones around them. Making treasured memories is therefore essential, and Make-A-Wish works tirelessly to ensure each wish is truly individual and memorable. Every child has different dreams, from becoming a pirate to a Disneyland holiday. Wishes take time and money to organise, plus creativity, passion and commitment from everyone involved.

There are lots of ways that you can help Make-A-Wish. You could donate directly, organise a fundraising event or volunteer. Follow the charity on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest updates.
