  • It’s not easy for a courageous kid like Kyer to fight against a critical illness. Thanks to his wish experience of learning how to design airplanes, Kyer’s mom says it gave him more confidence and creativity in his airplane drawings. Research shows that a wish come true can help kids build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness, and with help from partners like Party City, we’re dedicated to granting the wish of every eligible child. Through 3/31, Party City will be collecting in-store donations to help more wishes come true for kids like Kyer, with 100% of donations received going to Make-A-Wish America.

The Orange County and the Inland Empire chapter hopes to grant 348 wishes this year, but that is still less than half of the eligible wishes in the community. With additional funding, more wishes could be granted.
