Wishmakers on Campus groups can be groups that solely fundraise and raise awareness for Make-A-Wish® Iowa. Wishmakers on Campus contribute a vast majority of their time and energy to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Student groups such as student governments, athletic teams and Greek organizations, are also welcome to participate in Wishmakers on Campus by spending a portion of their time planning a specific fundraising event for Make-A-Wish Iowa.
The possibilities are endless- anything from a pancake breakfast or 5K walk/ run, to a bachelor/ bachelorette auction or silent auction. By participating in Wishmakers on Campus, you can help bring a ray of hope for children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. A fulfilled wish can replenish a child’s faith in the basic wholeness and goodness of the world. It lifts them up and carries them away to a place where dreams still do come true. It brings the magic back and with it…hope– as valuable a treatment as any medicine on Earth!
