Boiler Plate
Make-A-Wish Southern Florida has a sole mission: Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Started in 1983 by the Plantation Junior Woman's Club, the Southern Florida chapter has grown from granting a wish every 180 days to granting a wish every 14 hours. In its 35-year history, the organization has granted more than 11,000 wishes. It is our vision to grant the wish of every medically-eligible child in our territory. In the 2019 fiscal year, we expect to grant more than 600 wishes to local children with critical illnesses. Additionally, we anticipate granting another 175+ wishes, in collaboration with other chapters, when children come to our territory to experience their wishes. Make-A-Wish Southern Florida serves children and families in 22 Florida counties in Southeast and Southwest Florida, the Tampa Bay and Suncoast regions and the U.S. Virgin Islands. To learn more about how you can help make wishes come true, visit us on the web at You can also connect with us @makeawishsfla on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram.
