One of the most important parts of helping A Wish Come True to fulfill its mission is to receive referrals of potential wish children. The wish process starts when a caring person refers a child to us. Learn about who is eligible for a wish to be granted and how AWCT accepts referrals, you could be that caring person. Remember "Dreams are only A WISH away."
