「願望成真基金」香港辦事處於1989年投入服務,最初由凱瑟克基金管理,及至1998年註冊成為「國際願望成真基金」的會員。我們希望幫助香港及澳門患有重病的小朋友實踐一個特別的願望,並透過願望成真的體驗令他們的人生充滿盼望、毅力及歡樂。

「願望成真基金」於1980年成立,源於一位患了白血病的7歲美國男孩Christopher Greicius希望成為一名警員。在亞利桑那州公共安全部官員的協助下,男孩終可願望成真,成為亞利桑那州第一位榮譽警長,坐上警車及直升機作陸空巡邏。受到他的啟發,國際「願望成真基金」得以成立,現於全球超過42個國家及地區設有辦事處,至今已幫助近50個國家逾415,000名兒童實現願望。

在過往的十多年,基金會得到各界人士鼎力支持,令不少病童和其家人受惠。願望不分大小,簡單如要求一份小禮物、到外地增廣見聞、與卡通人物或偶像政要會面、甚至是到荷里活出席首映禮或化身迪士尼公主、還有開一場屬於自己的音樂會和藝術展覽、更包括幫助他人及回饋社會等等,其間不少名人和國際機構都曾協助及參與本會的服務。每個願望故事皆創意無限,彌足珍貴,最令人欣慰的是不少事例證明,小朋友在完成心願後變得較為開朗,更積極對抗病魔。

Make-A-Wish Hong Kong was founded in 1989 under the administration of Keswick Foundation and registered as a member of Make-A-Wish Foundation International in 1998. We grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions in Hong Kong and Macau to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.

Make-A-Wish is a global organization that was originally founded in 1980 and inspired by 7 year old Christopher Greicius who suffered from leukemia and wished to be a police officer. Chris’ wish was fulfilled when he became Arizona’s first and only honorary police officer. Ever since the day Chris got his wish and spurred the start of a magical vision, many other children have had their dreams come true. Make-A-Wish can now be found in nearly 50 countries, with more than 42 international affiliates, granting more than 415,000 wishes so far.

For years, Make-A-Wish Hong Kong has received tremendous support from different sectors of the society, which in turn has benefited many wish children and their families. Wishes range from the small, like a little toy, to the big, such as fulfilling their wishes overseas. Popular wishes include meeting with their favourite idols, going to the Hollywood Red-Carpet Premiere, being a beautiful princess, having a “bamboo-copter” to fly into the sky, giving back to society by organizing a charity sale. A lot of famous celebrities and well known organizations and companies have helped us fulfill the wishes of the children by showing actual support. With the excitement of having their dream realized, many children became more joyful and are more optimistic in fighting their illnesses.
