Who We Are

Watching a child’s face light up with joy is priceless. Whether it’s a trip to Disney World, a swim with the dolphins or hanging out with a famous country singer, it’s the chance for a dream to come true and to lift up a child, and their entire family, along the way. That’s what we do as part of The Wish Connection. We’re here to grant amazing wishes, create smiling faces, and build a connection between families and a community that cares. The Wish Connection is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was formed in the fall of 2006 by AT&T employees in San Antonio who wanted to be directly involved in granting the wishes of children who have life-threatening or chronically debilitating medical conditions. The Wish Connection is truly a unique wish-granting organization that has expanded its grant-giving to Austin and Dallas, Texas and several locations in California.

Anthony H’s Wish – 2016, California

Anthony is an amazing young man who brightens any room he enters.  Anthony’s wish was to have an awesome vacation with his mom, dad and 2 sisters.  To make Anthony’s wish come true Team Anthony sent the family to Disneyland.  Of course they added a little magic along the way.

Tyler B’s Wish – 2016, California

Tyler’s wish was to fly to Florida to spend some time at Walt Disney World as well as checkout the Kennedy Space Center.  Things didn’t go exactly as planned thanks to Hurricane Matthew making an appearance but in the end everyone had a great time.

Lucy is a beautiful young lady who loves fashion, princesses and sparkles.  Lucy’s wish was to have a special vacation with her family in Disneyland.  She also wished to have a room makeover so she could share a room with her older sister.
