Hello friends of Make-A-Wish

Our website is really busy right now, so you're seeing this page.

We apologize, and we'll be back very soon.

We truly appreciate your interest in Make-A-Wish® and our mission to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. You can help wishes come true.

It takes doctors, nurses, social workers, sponsors, donors and more than 27,000 volunteers – each playing a special role.

Learn more about Make-A-Wish volunteers Danna, Christie and Kendra and find out how you can give hope and joy to children in your community today.


Danna began supporting and volunteering for Make-A-Wish back in 1998. Danna has granted more than 45 wishes since she started wish granting more than 16 years ago.

Christie"Wish kids are the most inspiring and courageous people I have ever known, and they will bless your life in ways you never dreamed possible. We don't just go out and meet these families and gather information for their wish, we get to know them and they become a part of our Make-A-Wish family. We have a saying here "once a wish kid, always a wish kid."


Christie has been supporting and volunteering for Make-A-Wish since 1999.

Danna"From that very first wish interview I was hooked. I was captivated by this little boy who had endured so much. A little boy who wanted more than anything to go to his favorite Florida theme park. After that first wish, I was determined that part of my life’s mission would be to serve these children through


Kendra had her wish granted by Make-A-Wish volunteers, Christie and Danna, in 2002. Since she started granting wishes in 2005, Kendra has granted 28 wishes.

Kendra"My journey with Make-A-Wish began 13 years ago when I was a recipient of a wish. I was a senior in high school when I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin's lymphoma. During my treatment period, I was interviewed by two volunteers, Christie Matthews and Danna Johnson. My wish ... to meet the Atlanta Braves!"
