About A Special Wish Foundation Cleveland Chapter
A Special Wish Foundation (ASW) is a Cleveland-based wish granting foundation, granting wishes for children from birth up to 20 years of age with life-threatening diseases. Currently, the organization grants wishes for 148 kiddos and families receiving care at University Hospitals (UH) Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital and The Ronald McDonald House.
When a child joins ASW they are immediately enrolled in the "Sparkles of Joy" program. This program works with local businesses to create a year-round culture of hospital inpatient and immune comprised focused events to ASW wish families.
This entire program is 100% donated by our community partners. These experiences and/or activities can include a spa say for parents, hospital food & toy drops, pre-opening access to Dave & Busters, The Lego Store, Chuck E. Cheese, Build-A-Bear & Sky Zone, tickets to a Cleveland professional sporting event, a family-day to Kalahari or Cedar Point, private movie experiences and even "date nights" for Mom & Dad.
A wish can be anything the child dreams. This includes anything from a trip to Walt Disney World, a Disney Cruise, a trip to Hawaii, a celebrity meet and greet, a backyard playground or swimming with dolphins. Their wish is our command!
Last year’s event was a huge success – thank you for making Ella’s wish come true.” Read more.
