Experience the magic of wish granting for kids with critical illness

Experience the magic of wish granting for kids with critical illness

It all started with
one family
in need


It comes as no surprise that wishes have the power to change a child’s life, but what surprised us is how it changed ours.

Abriella was battling the same mitochondrial disease that took her brother Bryce just two years earlier. Our community came together to throw her a dream wedding, a celebration of love for everyone in her life to rally around.

Being witness to the granting of a wish left an indelible impression on us. It inspired us to create this series so others can experience these life-changing moments.

I was blown away by the love Melody and David put into this film for us. Now we have these memories preserved for a lifetime.

And then we took the
first step


A concept film sponsored by SONY Alpha Female+

After being inspired by Aubriella’s story, we connected with Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts & Rhode Island to see if we could help tell the story of another wish fulfillment. Together we developed a film that depicted how a wish is more than what it may seem on the surface. Just The First Step tells the big hearted story of Conor and is a model for the form of our One Wish film series.

Being present for a wish was a life-changing moment for me. This film series is a beautiful vision. I want more!

MANY ORGANIZATIONS,
one mission


Approximately 200 nonprofits nationwide deliver joy and hope to kids battling critical illness through wish granting.

Annually, there are an estimated 27,000 children in the United States that are diagnosed with a qualifying condition. Wishes serve as more than just a smile on these kids’ faces for one day. 100% of medical providers say a wish experience improves a child’s emotional well-being.*

We hope that our films can raise awareness for families of critically ill children to advocate for themselves to receive a wish and encourage health care professionals to make more referrals so all kids with critical illness can experience the magic of childhood again.

CAPTURING
joyful moments


A docuseries that captures the stories of Wish Families

Each episode of the Imperfect JOY® docuseries will start with an interview in a family’s home where they can truly be themselves. Then we’ll follow them through an ordinary day to show what it actually looks like to care for a child with a critical illness, while also capturing the little sparks of joy that are present in everyday moments.

Our hope is that these families’ stories will be a reminder of the beauty in being fully present for joy no matter what challenges lay ahead.
