Happy Volunteer Recognition Day!

Here at Kids Wish Network our number of dedicated volunteers continues to grow. There are thousands of wonderful people throughout the country who donate their time and services to volunteer for our organization and on April 20, National Volunteer Recognition Day, we wanted to thank all the businesses, organizations, donors and supporters who have gone above and beyond for our kids!

From face painters to professional athletes and celebrities, we’ve seen – and welcomed – our fair share of caring individuals who are on a mission to help brighten the lives of our deserving kids. We love what we do here at Kids Wish Network and we know that we couldn’t impact so many young lives without all the wonderful people who have lent a hand to help us reach out to our sick and deserving kids across the country.

As a national organization, we are truly humbled by the fact that so many amazing people come together and take time out of their lives to make an impact on our kids. It is such an overwhelmingly rewarding feeling!

Here are just a few volunteers who have recently helped us spread joy to our kids:

Bear Grylls
