Testimonials

"Helping to put smiles on faces is a blessing and I am honored to have the opportunity to do this." ~ Sue, WWE

"I highly recommend Kids Wish to other parents. It was an experience of a lifetime." ~ Ashton’s mom “The items sent were greatly needed. Donations have been down this year (probably the economy). Ironically, it seems that when the economy is unstable, domestic violence rates and our client base increases. Our kids in the emergency shelter need things to do to consume their time. It can get very boring and tedious; mothers are usually stressed and depressed. Many needy children (i.e. our outreach kids, as well as out shelter kids) will be made happy during this holiday season due to your generous contribution. Thank you very much!” ~ Haven of Lake & Sumter Counties “The toys were wonderful. We appreciate you all thinking of our children and bringing smiles to their faces.” ~ Backus Children’s Hospital (Savannah, GA) “We were absolutely thrilled with this gift! It is absolutely wonderful to be able to do something special for each patient to ease their fear and discomfort while in the hospital.” ~ Memorial Hospital and Healthcare Program (Jasper, IN) "My wish happened exactly how I wanted it to. All of my expectations were accomplished. Thank you all so much!" ~ Alma "Kids Wish Network is the best. You created memories that will last forever. I haven’t seen my family smile that much in a very long time! Thank you!" ~ Marshall’s mom “Receiving the Hero of the Month Award definitely put one of the biggest smiles on Chelsi’s face. It has also been an incredible boost for her self-esteem.” ~ Chelsi’s parent, Shriners Hospitals for Children, Twin Cities “Thanks again for such great programs to lift the spirits of our kids who need a lift. You make such a difference in so many kids’ lives.” ~ Lutheran Children’s Hospital "You take very good care of your wish kids. If it wasn't for your foundation, my daughter's wish would have not been granted. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts." ~ Brittany’s mom “We really appreciate all of the wonderful items you sent. The patients will greatly benefit from your generosity! We especially appreciate the infant items and we never receive items for that age group.” ~ Ochsner Medical Center (New Orleans, LA) "Everything was perfect. All we can say is THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. You guys do a great thing. You will never be forgotten." ~ Shawn and Stephen’s family “Amazing! It was great for Ethan to have a positive experience at the hospital. It is one of those moments that we will always look back on as a truly happy experience. He smiled all day as a result of his award ceremony. Thank you so much for giving our son some happiness!” ~ Ethan’s parent, Alaska Native Medical Center Our whole team is very supportive and proud of its association with Kids Wish Network. Nothing can replace the tears of happiness and excitement, not only from the children, but the medical staff and the parents who were so grateful to have such joy." ~ Karen Pelle, President of Megatrux, Inc. "I would like to say thank you for all that you do for kids who hardly have anything. Today was like Christmas for them. Their big smiles meant a lot...once again, thank you so much!" ~ Laura, Mom, Gallup, New Mexico - KWN On Tour Stop “Many, many thanks to everyone at Kids Wish Network for putting so many smiles on our son Tyler’s face. He’s had such a rough year medically and it was nice to see his wish come true for his trip to Disney World. It would not have been possible without your generosity. Thank you to all who support this wonderful organization. You are a true blessing to so many families who need such blessings every now and then!” - Tyler’s mom “This wish experience has uplifted not only Nic, but our whole family… I see a turnaround in his demeanor that is joyous and more confident. How can I thank you for that? Words fall short.” - Nic’s mom
