Arts and Culture: Wish Granting Organizations


International

New Sign Give Kids the World Village is a 70-acre resort complete with over 140 Villa accommodations, entertainment attractions, whimsical venues, and fun specifically designed for children with special needs. With the help of many generous individuals, corporations and partnering wish-granting organizations, Give Kids The World has welcomed more than 100,000 families from all 50 states and over 70 countries.


National

New Sign Dream Foundation, founded in Santa Barbara in 1994 by Thomas Rollerson, this is the first national wish granting organization for adults ages 18 and over suffering life-threatening illness. The mission of the Dream Foundation is to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their families who are battling life-threatening illness. The Dream Foundation helps adults find peace and closure with the realization of a final wish. The work of Dream Foundation is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Odyssey VistaCare HealthCare Foundation. To apply, visit their website above.

New Sign Warrior's Wish Foundation is the first organization of its kind in granting wishes exclusively to United States Military Veterans and their families who are battling a life-limiting illness. Through the fantastic financial support of generous donors, the financial contributions of Veterans' Service Organizations, their volunteer network and their wonderful corporate partnerships, they are able to grant the wishes of those who have served this great nation of ours. A wish may be as simple as a new hearing aid or scooter chair, or as involved as one last family vacation or reunion.
