Being a Make-A-Wish volunteer, your work as a Make-A-Wish volunteer is meaningful and leaves a lasting impact.
Helping the organization get closer to granting the wish of every eligible child, you feel that you are right at the heart of the experience. Efforts are rewarded, not in dollars or cents, but in joy and smiles of wish recipients across the state of North Dakota. Volunteers continue to participate for Make-A-Wish North Dakota to be part of an incredible difference in the lives of wish kids.
There are several roles available for volunteers such as wish granter, skill-based volunteer, events volunteer, Speaker’s Bureau volunteer, office help, and translator/interpreter.
Volunteers are critical to granting children’s wishes. We’re joined by a force of 40,000 volunteers worldwide who are united in our quest to make our local communities better places by infusing hope and joy into the lives of many. Together, we are Make-A-Wish. We hope we inspire you to give back to our community.
Most importantly, wishes help kids look past their limitations, families overcome anxiety and entire communities experience joy. Wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. And wishes not only would help wish children – they also have far-reaching, positive impacts on their families and communities.
If there is a child you could refer for a wish, please consider as it will be something they will remember for the rest of their lives.
