What we do best
Granting wishes to terminally and chronically ill children. A perfect wish is one where the child simply feels it came true because wishes do come true.
- Canetta—T-shirts of Courage, Hope and Strength
to raise money for cancer research and awareness
- Sara—a ride to Mama Santa’s
for her favorite pasta with Family and friends
- Donnie—musical magic
for a young man and his passion for the guitar
How wishes come true
Wish Coordinators assigned to area hospitals contact hospital child life workers, social workers, nurses, and physicians, who tell children’s wishes to the Leprechaun Wish Coordinator, all while maintaining the secrecy that makes the wish magical for the child and donor alike.
How it all works
At the heart of The Leprechaun Foundation are three committees:
- The Wish Committee
- The Fundraising Committee
- The Membership/Publicity Committee
The Foundation’s Executive Board supervises all committee activities and is made up of members who have been actively involved for over a year. From time-to-time special committees are appointed to work on special projects.
