The Power to Change a Child's Life is in your Hands

Our Mission

Angelwish.org was created in 1999 with the mission to provide the public with an easy way to grant wishes to the millions of children that are living with chronic illnesses around the world. Angelwish achieves its mission by applying 100% of individual donations for program services and that those funds are extended, where possible, to teach young people a hands on lesson in philanthropy. 

Angelwish is a registered 501(c)3 charitable organization in the United States and is Registered Charity No. 1141090 in the United Kingdom.

Where We Work

North America
Together, we can make holidays and birthdays something to celebrate for children living with Chronic Illnesses all over the country. Find a care center that means something to you. You can grant a wish through the wishlist of items or you can make a donation and we'll take school children on an Angelwish Giving Spree to buy birthday presents for the children we support.

Internationally
According to the World Health Organization, the increase in chronic diseases is a global epidemic that has mainly been either ignored or seen as less important than other health issues. This is especially true in developing countries. However, the truth is that 80% of all chronic disease deaths occur in low and middle income countries. People from developing countries who develop chronic diseases are also more likely to die from them at a younger age than people in the developed world. This is because chronic diseases and poverty tend to go hand in hand. Impoverished people are usually more vulnerable to these conditions, as they are exposed to more risks and have less access to health services. Chronic diseases also hurt economic development and worsen poverty as people are forced to miss work and pay for medical expenses.
