Kids For Wish Kids®

This is a fun way for children and teenagers to be leaders in a "for kids by kids" type of fundraising program.

Kids For Wish KidsParticipants can be involved individually or through a school group or other club. Participants choose and plan their own fundraisers to raise money to grant the wishes of children living with life-threatening medical conditions here in Los Angeles County. We've also had Bar/Bat Mitzvah students plan their mitzvah projects to help the organization.
