Bringing Holiday Cheer,
to  sick children for 13 years
 
 A  Holiday toy for a sick child is also
 a blessing for challenged parents.
 
Help us to make children smile and parents proud this Holiday.

http://www.angelwish.org

Details on how you can directly contribute
to post shortly.
We will also post material to allow you to quickly organize
 a giving circle with your family or company.

 

Your act of giving has never had so much impact.

Take a moment to read stories of how Angelwish gifts have impacted the lives of children in need
 with chronic illnesses all over the country.

It is a real gift to be invited into a families experience, particularly at this extremely vulnerable time. It is also very humbling to be the liason for the community that is providing time, generosity & compassion for these often overlooked children and families. - Social Worker at the Jersey Shore Medical Center

The movie theater gift cards have been great. one family got to see the kids' first movie and one boy took his mother out on a "date" - Hackensack, New Jersey

For many of our patients this is the only Christmas they get. This is either due to their parents being deceased or that there is no financial way to afford a holiday. These presents are anticipated by our patients yearly. - New York, New York

We had a mom come and pick up toys from your program in the past and, with tears in her eyes, she thanked us for the items telling us that those were the only items she would be able to give her 5 kids that year - otherwise, they would have nothing on Christmas morning. She was so grateful for the small amount of items we were able to provide with the help from your program. - Memphis, Tennessee

A single mother with HIV cried when her daughter was presented with the Angelwish gift, the Harry Potter gift set. She said that her daughter was a huge Harry Potter fan, and her daughter had wanted the books for a long time ans she was unable to provide them for her. Both mother and daughter were equally excited with the books. Another HIV Positive Patient was extremely grateful for the presents for her children, her husband was recently laid off and they were worrying about providing gifts for their young children. The entire family was elated by the presents the children received. It was exciting to see parents as excited as their children when gifts were open. - Morgantown, West Virginia

Last year a generous donar donated an mp3 player to an HIV infected teen. He now listens to it whenever he has to go to the lab for blood draws (which he hates) and it relaxes him. Thank you! - Long Beach, California

One of our clients said that he could not have given his kids any gifts last Christmas if not for the Angelwish program! He is a single father struggling with health issues and sincerely appreciates the help (as do we!) - Billings, Montana

Angelwish provided us with a number of kits for collecting bugs as well as a butterfly farm. On one of our service evenings we held a nature themed evening with a trip to the local park. One of the children was particularly fascinated with bugs and was very intrigued with what he discovered. We are looking forward to presenting him with the kit at the Christmas party. I think we may have a future botanist on our hands! - London, United Kingdom

Every gift we give makes a difference to the children in terms of self respect. Many have never been given anything of good quality before. A highlight last year is about a family we have been working with for years, some of the children in the family are positive some are not. The family are just getting out of destitution and have been living hand to mouth for years. We were able to give each child a good quality christmas gift last year. This raised their self esteem and self worth considerably as they were able to go into school after christmas and tell their classmates what they got for christmas for the first time in their lives - Manchester, United Kingdom

 

 

Children Living With Chronic Illnesses

Become aware

Chances are that someone you know has a chronic illness such as Asthma, Diabetes, Kidney Disease, or one of the many other medical conditions that require frequent attention, treatment, and sometimes even hospitalization.. Imagine how a child's life can be disrupted by having to prick themselves several times a day to test their blood sugar? How a child with hemophilia must abstain from recess to ensure they don't injure themselves?

Angelwish was founded in 1999 to ensure that each and every child affected by HIV/AIDS would have an enjoyable childhood - along the way, we realized how the work that we do could help even more children who are not experiencing the same happy childhood that we have. Join us and grant a holiday or birthday wish to a child living with Chronic Illness in the United States or United Kingdom through our special Amazon.com wishlists or contribute to the life sustaining needs of children overseas.

 

About Angelwish

What We Do

  1. Online Birthday and Holiday Wish Granting

    Angelwish pioneered the concept of digital philanthropy, engaging the public to provide critical psychosocial and educational support for children and adolescents living with chronic illnesses all over the world.

  2. International Giving

    Angelwish offers donors the opportunity to support over 32 programs overseas, where monetary contributions have the greatest impact. Angelwish collects these funds from the public and redistributes 100% of the money to the partner organization to use for medical, nutritional, and educational purposes.

  3. Angelwish Holiday Toy Drive

    Angelwish operates the physical distribution of toys donated by the Today Show Charitable Foundation. Though our roots are in online fulfillment of wishes, Angelwish is able to support our core values by reaching more children and encouraging civic engagement as a result of this drive.

  4. Angelwish Giving Sprees

    Angelwish takes school children on Angelwish Giving Sprees at various toy stores or bookstores, talking to them about children living with chronic illnesses all over the country, and then asking them to select toys for those children using our money to pay for the items. Participating children go on to associate giving back with something fun.

  5. Angelwish Educational Support

    Angelwish believes that there is a gap in support to at risk children with chronic illnesses and that our network and services can have an even greater impact on the educational opportunities for children.

 

Mission Statement

Angelwish helps busy people grant wishes to children living with chronic illnesses all over the world while teaching the next generation about the power of giving.

Angelwish.org was created in 1999 with the mission to provide the public with an easy way to grant wishes to the millions of children that are living with HIV/AIDS around the world. Infected or affected by the disease, their opportunities for a "normal" childhood are virtually impossible. By harnessing the power of the Internet, Angelwish helps donors add a ray of hope to their lives. In 2010, after 10 years of focusing on HIV/AIDS, Angelwish expanded its mission to include children living with chronic illnesses such as asthma, diabetes and kidney disease. 

Angelwish achieves its mission by ensuring that 100% of individual donations are used for program services and that those funds incorporate an educational component giving young people a hands on lesson in philanthropy. 

Angelwish is a registered 501(c)3 charitable organization in the United States and is Registered Charity No. 1141090 in the United Kingdom.

 

North America

Together, we can make holidays and birthdays something to celebrate for children living with Chronic Illnesses all over the country. Start by selecting a state, city, and care center that means something to you. You can grant a wish through the wishlist or you can make a donation and we'll take school children on an Angelwish Giving Spree to buy birthday presents for the children we support.

Internationally

According to the World Health Organization, the increase in chronic diseases is a global epidemic that has mainly been either ignored or seen as less important than other health issues. This is especially true in developing countries.  

However, the truth is that 80% of all chronic disease deaths occur in low and middle income countries. People from developing countries who develop chronic diseases are also more likely to die from them at a younger age than people in the developed world. 

This is because chronic diseases and poverty tend to go hand in hand.  Impoverished people are usually more vulnerable to these conditions, as they are exposed to more risks and have less access to health services. Chronic diseases also hurt economic development and worsen poverty as people are forced to miss work and pay for medical expenses.

Angelwish (UK) Board of Trustees

Paul Caseiras

Born and raised in New York, Paul became interested in helping children, especially those from developing countries, when he started his banking career working with clients in Emerging Markets. Through his years of experience in Latin America and Eastern Europe, Paul witnessed the plight of underprivileged children and has used his contacts in these countries to help them as much as possible 

Paul is currently a Director of Credit Suisse in charge of Fixed Income Prime Brokerage.  In this role Paul deals with international investors throughout the world and helps them with their fixed income investments.

Michael Walters

Born in Scotland, Michael moved to Trinidad when he was just a few days old and has been travelling ever since. After attending school in his native Scotland, Michael went on to study Artificial Intelligence and later Design and Digital Media at Edinburgh University. This equipped him well for his role as freelance web designer,  where he used the freedom it afforded to continue travelling. Returning to the UK, Michael took up a role at the London office of Next Jump, a New York headquartered online e-commerce company, where he is currently helping grow the Marketing and Technology team. 
 

 

 

Shimmy Mehta, founder

Early in his career with a Big Four accounting firm, Shimmy saw the need for a simple and rewarding way for busy people like himself to get involved in the community. He quickly tapped into his network of contacts and mentors to pioneer the concept of digital philanthropy through Angelwish.org, spending the greater part of his 9 years at the Firm matching the resources of his peers with the needs of the many children who were living with HIV/AIDS. 

In 2006, Shimmy sent his resignation by text message, took the helm of Angelwish in the US, jumped over the pond to start up Angelwish in the UK, and co-founded another nonprofit called "Karma Geek". In 2009-2010, during what was possibly the worst economic climate to hit nonprofits, he made unorthodox decision to expand services to include children in need who were dealing with Chronic Illnesses.
