Over 400,000 children live in the American foster care system each year. That is 400,000 children who don’t get to experience the simple joys of a normal childhood. With children moving frequently from home to home, it can be challenging to foster things like family holidays, a sense of belonging, and a feeling of home. These children often have very few places they feel fully comfortable or possessions of their own.
The Solution Offered by One Simple Wish
One Simple Wish helps children in the foster care system to experience the joy of being a carefree kid. They grant the wishes of foster children, so that they have the tools they need to succeed and comfort items that make them feel at home. Many people take for granted the smallest items such as a computer to finish homework, sneakers to play basketball, and a board game to share with friends can, but they make a huge difference in a child’s life!
