World Wish Day

Special Days

Event details

This event begins 29/04/20 and repeats every year forever

 It was the wish of seven-year-old Leukaemia sufferer to become a police officer. When police heard about this they wanted to help and granted his wish. He was a police officer for one day on the 29th April 1980. Others heard about this and thought that granting wishes for sick children was a good idea. So, the Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded and became one of the best-known children’s charities in the world.

This led to the birth of World Wish Day – the anniversary of the day the police granted Chris’ wish. There are now 48 countries involved in World Wish Day. 

Have you ever blown a dandelion to make a wish?  Ever wished on a shooting star or on blowing out Birthday Candles?  That may seem daft to some but wishes are wonderful things - they are full of hope and looking forward into the future with positivity. At the launch event of zero49 I was moved by peoples wishes; their Bucket Lists.  Don't wait until something 'life changing' to happen.  

Make that wish, set it up as a goal, as a priority and GO GET IT!!
