The Wish Effect

More than a one-off experience, a wish has a proven, lasting and life-changing impact on a child with a critical illness and everyone around them. From the anticipation to the realisation of a wish, a child and everyone around them are touched by its powerful effects, giving them renewed hope and strength.

Open Kitchen

By janice o’connor

Open Kitchen is a culinary title with a good cause. It is a result of a decade of charity parties and dinners hosted by the charismatic O’Connors, with Janice cooking and preparing the glorious meals, alongside her husband Terry, hosting their friends at their home. Receive a free copy of the cookbook for every $100 donation made to Make-A-Wish Singapore. 

Si Xuan’s Wish

For Si Xuan, her imagination wandered to a place of fairy tales and adventures in a land called Arendelle, the central location of her favourite movie, Frozen. As an avid Frozen fan, Si Xuan was so excited to tell the wish granters all about Queen Elsa during the visits, so when we asked her what her one true wish would be, Si Xuan said she wanted to meet Queen Elsa, her favourite Frozen character.

A wish granted is a gift of hope and strength for children with critical illnesses. At the same time, its positive impact can radiate and uplift their families and the community around them, creating treasured memories that will last a lifetime. Watch our video, One Tiny Wish, and experience for yourself what ‘The Wish Effect’ is all about.

The Wish

JOURNEY

The wish journey begins the moment your child’s application is approved. Our wonderful Wish Team works closely with a pool of incredible volunteers to carefully plan a wish journey that complements a child’s medical treatment and long-term well-being. Once we’ve tapped into their imagination to capture their cherished wish, we’ll take them on a wondrous journey of anticipation in the lead up to their wish coming true.

WISH IMPACT

Make-A-Wish volunteers visit each child to capture their greatest wish, getting to the heart of what kids truly want and why. This profound insight is part of what makes Make-A-Wish unique, giving children full creative control and helping to shape their entire Wish Journey.

Every child’s imagination is unique, so we partner with families, volunteers and medical teams to design each journey to create an extraordinary experience that stays true to the child’s cherished wish.

In the lead up to the wish, we take each child on a journey designed to build excitement and provide a welcome distraction from medical treatment. This can be powerful as the wish itself. It creates anticipation and empowers the child by actively involving them in the creation of their wish.

When the moment finally arrives, children get to experience their greatest wish come true – it’s everything they’ve imagined and more.

Wish impact studies show that a child’s wish lives on, long after the moment. A wish gives more than just hope – with an incredible and lasting effect on the lives of children with critical illnesses, their families and wider communities.
