Children across Wyoming are waiting to have their wishes granted. Whether you’re in Casper, Cheyenne, Crowheart, Green River or any of the other communities in our state, we offer opportunities for you to make a difference for these children and their families.
Volunteering is a great way to help. At Make-A-Wish® Wyoming, we value our volunteers and their time. We invite you to share the power of a wish, whether you can give a few hours each month or a few days each year.
Your help matters. Eighty-nine percent of surveyed health care professionals told Make-A-Wish they believe the wish experience can influence kids’ physical health, while 97 percent of surveyed families said they had seen improvements in their child’s emotional health. Seventy-four percent of families in the survey said the wish experience marked a turning point in their children’s response to treatment.
Everything we do at Make-A-Wish® Wyoming is focused on our mission: to grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Granting these wishes is possible only with the dedication of our volunteers.
And what can you expect from your experience as a Make-A-Wish Wyoming volunteer? You can make the impossible possible. You can change a child’s life. You can change a family’s journey.
Here’s how one of our volunteers – Sandi Riley of Cheyenne, a former wish mom – put it:
“The joy I see when we can talk happy things is amazing. I do not bring pokes or X-rays, but instead I bring happy thoughts to dream about. My heart is so full after helping to grant a wish – full of happiness that I in a small way made all the rough times and bumpy roads go away for at least a bit.”
