Little Wishes™ grants the immediate and ongoing wishes of hospitalized children.

Little Wishes™ brings moments of joy and much needed distraction to brighten long hospital stays.

Our Mission

Little Wishes™ grants the immediate and ongoing wishes of chronically and critically ill, hospitalized children to ease their discomfort, bring them moments of joy and brighten long hospital stays.  All wishes are granted in the hospital to give a child something positive to look forward to and provide much needed distraction. In 2020, our mission become more vital than ever.  COVID-19 restrictions require that our patients be kept in strict isolation, with only one parent allowed at their bedside.  While many hospital programs for children have come to a halt, we continue to make a difference every day because our program is run by essential medical staff who take great joy in delivering wishes and watching a child smile or laugh for the first time in weeks. In addition, we celebrate birthdays and other milestones, always bringing much needed happiness to children who are hospitalized for weeks, months and in some occasions, even longer. Founded in the San Francisco Bay Area, Little Wishes™ now serves children’s hospitals across the country.  

Little Wishes has granted over 20,000 wishes and counting!

When we want him to get in the car to drive one way to the hospital (3 hours), he now gets excited because it is his “wish” day! Thanks for such an amazing gift… “quality of life” when we don’t know what his time will entail.”
