When you help grant a wish, you create the greatest joy possible—and an immediate turning point in a child’s treatment and recovery. More children with critical illnesses need the hope and joy of a wish—and you have the power to create it. This Giving Tuesday, November29, the Comcast NBC Universal Bay Area family is partnering with Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area to give joy today and restore hope for tomorrow.
It's easy to be a part of our campaign!

A gift of any amount will bring hope and joy into a child’s life when it is needed most. Research shows that children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. A wish replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope.

Donate Airline Miles and Points
Wishes involving travel and gatherings were put on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic, but as of September 15, 2021, Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area is now able to grant travel and gathering wishes, as well as some in-person celebrity wishes. As travel wishes resume, now is a great time to donate unused airline miles for wish kids and their families. Once donated, your miles never expire and will send wish children and their families on unforgettable experiences as it becomes safe.
You can support Make-A-Wish's Wishes in Flight® Program by donating unused airline miles and points from Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, United Airlines, Delta Air Lines and JetBlue. To donate and learn more, please click here.
