About World Wish Day (April 29th)
Make-A-Wish started with a single wish on April 29, 1980, when 7-year-old Chris Greicius had his wish granted to become a police officer. Chris’ community in Phoenix came together to make his wish come true. Chris’ wish ignited a spark and a global movement that led to the creation of Make-A-Wish Philadelphia, Delaware & Susquehanna Valley in 1986, which has granted more than 7,900 wishes. In honor of the wish that started it all, Make-A-Wish chapters and affiliates worldwide invite their communities to come together to help grant wishes throughout April, culminating in World Wish Day on April 29.
