Wishes Suspended During COVID-19
We hope that you and your families are safe and coping as best you can with these sudden, unsettling changes. Like many of you, we never envisioned a day like this, where everything seems so uncertain.
What is certain though is that now more than ever, our wish kids need us to keep them hopeful. While the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting us here at Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada, we are committed to doing everything we can – together – to continue to bring that hope to our Las Vegas community.
The health and safety of our community members is our priority, as we look to protect our wish kids, their families, our volunteers, and our team. To that end, we are postponing our upcoming wishes until further notice. It’s important to remember, though, this is only a postponement: Our kids WILL get their wish!
A wish is prescribed hope. The healing power of a wish starts when a child learns their wish is coming true and continues to work as they anticipate their wish. Our team will keep that hope alive throughout this uncertain time by continuing to accept and process new wish referrals daily and conduct wish discoveries virtually. And we are already preparing for the day we can continue to grant the wish of every eligible child and get back to the children who have been waiting because of COVID-19.
