About Make-A-Wish Hawaii:

Make-A-Wish Hawaii (MAWH) creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We seek to bring every eligible child’s wish to life, because a wish is an integral part of a child’s medical journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight their illness. Headquartered in Honolulu, MAWH is considered one of the top charities in the state, with every dollar raised in Hawaiʻi staying in Hawaiʻi to support local wishes. Our organization has been transforming lives, and uniting our Hawaiʻi community in the process, for more than 40 years. One of the first local chapters established, MAWH continues to be among the busiest in the nation. Together, generous donors, supporters, staff and more than 400 volunteers have granted more than 1,700 wishes for local keiki across the state of Hawaiʻi since 1982 and have hosted more than 18,000 others for children around the world for wishes to visit our islands.
