Started in 1997, Kids Wish Network's goal is to improve the lives of children facing life-threatening medical conditions. An international organization, Kids Wish Network maintains several programs designed to help children and their families, including Hero of the Month and A Child Forever Funeral Assistance.
It is possible to support the organization in several ways. Aside from making a financial donation to the Guardian Angel fund, interested individuals can personally volunteer with the organization’s distribution department. Volunteers in the department do everything from sorting toys to packing and mailing boxes to children around the United States. The organization also welcomes volunteer help with event organization, raising awareness, and blogging about the cause.
Kids Wish Network also welcomes donations of new toys and products from distributors and manufacturers. Toys, educational products, children’s clothing, and books are all suitable donations. Additionally, individuals and groups can sponsor a child’s wish or a facility. Sponsored facilities receive one of the organization’s Holiday of Hope Gift Banks of toys.
