Making of a Wish
How to Grant Amazing Wishes
Step #1: Apply
Obtain a Wish Application Packet from our website under Refer a Child. Complete all the documents in the packet, including the Physician’s Referral and Release of Liability forms and provide them to the Executive Committee contact in your geographical area.
Step #2: Eligibility
To qualify, children of AT&T employees (active or retired), OR children recommended by AT&T employees, must be between the ages of 3 and 18, reside in a geographic area of an Executive Committee or in an area of the United States where AT&T employees/retirees are available to grant wishes through The Wish Connection, have not had a wish granted or applied to have a wish granted by another Wish-Granting organization, and have a life-threatening or chronically-debilitating (permanent and substantially limiting of major life activities) medical condition.
Step #3: Getting the big news
After the Wish Application Packet has been received, reviewed and approved by the Executive Committee, the Wish Family is notified and given the BIG NEWS that their child has been approved to receive a wish from The Wish Connection organization.
Step #4: Wish Reveal Party
An amazing wish is created for the wish child through the interview process that takes place with the wish family and the Wish Child. The Wish Child is told the theme of his/her wish and given details on the amazing wish that has been planned specifically for him/her.
Step #5: The Big Day
This is an exciting time for The Wish Connection Wish Team as well as for the Wish Child. The Big Day is the day the components of the wish are experienced by the Wish Child, such as travel to Disney World, a room makeover for the Wish Child, a visit to Sea World, Great Wolfe Lodge, AT&T Stadium for a concert of the wish child’s favorite artist, etc. The list goes on.
