Why it Matters
Changing the Story of Aging
Granting a wish is a simple gesture, but the effect is extraordinary.
With each wish granted, older adults across the country are reconnected with the communities, passions, and people they love, helping them to live more vibrant and purposeful lives.
After their wish experience, over 90% of recipients reported increases in their quality of life and involvement in the world.
Aging is universal and should be celebrated. But negative views of aging leave older Americans isolated with fewer opportunities to connect with their communities, purpose, and passions in life.
