How to Make a Wish

Forums Help and Support Wishes and Grantors Help How to Make a Wish

  • Quick instructions —

    • Begin by choosing a category from the drop-down on the Make-a-Wish form. For the 2020 Christmas Season there are three categories to choose — Children and Teens, Disabled Adults/Seniors, or Family (choosing an Inactive or Admin-only category will delay approval of your Wish)
    • Click Continue button . . .
    • Fill in the appropriate fields, (some are *required) . . .
    • You may upload up to 4 images of up to 1 Mb each. If you don’t upload an image, a default image will be used in the search listing, but there will be no image in the Wish itself. Any kind of image is acceptable, except of course anything that might be offensive. Good clean humor is always welcome.
    • Once you fill out your Wish and upload your image(s), you may Preview your ad and either edit it, or Complete it. You must read and agree to the Terms of Service before completing your Wish.

    We hope and expect the process to be intuitive and self-explanatory, but if you have any questions or problems you may ask and report below.

    Hi Susan

    Pick-a-Wish is basically a matchmaking service for Wishers and Grantors. We provide a place for people to Make Wishes, then (we hope) someone comes along and Grants those Wishes.

    We have “Seasons” during the year.  Right now, through October 31, we’re in the Halloween Season.  When Halloween Season is over, we’ll close the Wisher-Grantor system for about a week and convert over the Christmas Season, which will run from about November 7 until Christmas Day.  We usually close for new Wishes a week or so before Christmas in order to allow the Grantors to fulfill and deliver the Wish.

    Hope this helps you understand how this works.  If you have further questions please let us know.

    Thanks

    Justin

    Hi Karen

    We always hope all Wishes are Granted.  But first you must post a Wish and I don’t yet see any Wish that you’ve posted.  In order to Make a Wish, please click the Wishes & Grantors menu above and choose Make-a-Wish, then follow the instructions above.

    Good luck!

    Thanks

    How do I know if I posted in the right category there is a disabled adult plus children so I’m not really sure if I posted in the right spot I do remember seeing that I would get an email from PAW when I created the account but I never received an email. I did look and seeing the wish posted but I don’t know if it was approved or not how do I find out?

    Hi Janice. It was approved four days ago and is under the Family category. You’ll be notified if someone Grants the Wish.

    Thanks

    Justin
