‘Messages of Hope:’ Make-A-Wish finds a way to bring hope and joy during uncertain times

Local News

SACRAMENTO, California (KSEE/KGPE) — Make-A-Wish announces “Messages of Hope” to give supporters and the general public alike a fun, easy way to help children with critical illnesses without needing to leave the house.

Through “Messages of Hope,” Make-A-Wish invites the public to spread hope and anticipation by writing, recording or photographing themselves delivering messages of encouragement for wish kids waiting for wishes impacted by COVID-19.

The last step is to post the messages to any social media channel along with the tag, @makeawishcanv and the hashtag, #WishesAreWaiting

Two or more friends should also be tagged and challenged because the more messages shared, the greater the impact on wish kids and their families.
