Welcome to Wish I May
Wish I May is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization providing 'Happy Birthdays' to underprivileged children and their parents/guardians in the Greene, Christian, Stone and Taney County area. The children we reach are those whose families are experiencing extreme financial difficulties and find it impossible to provide even the smallest birthday celebration. Wish I May is volunteer based and donation driven. We want every gift and donation given to go straight to the families we serve.
Why is "Wish I May" important?
Wish I May knows that every child's birthday is important and that even when parents and guardians don't have the means to provide, the toys given through our organization let them give their children a special day. Too many families find themselves lacking the funds to be able to provide a birthday for their children. No child should ever have to go without celebrating the day of their birth because a parent has to make the difficult choice between that month's bills and the birthday wishes of their child.
Wish I May works with over 50 not-for- profit organizations and schools in our area to provide birthday bags. A birthday bag will include a cake mix, icing, candles, birthday card, party plates, cups and napkins, two age appropriate toys and books, gift bags and tissue paper. Each bag is valued at approximately $40.
