The Rainbow Connection is a non-profit
organization established in 1985. Their mission is to grant wishes
to children from Michigan that have life threatening illnesses.
Criteria For Wishes
1. A wish must be
affordable, attainable, and achievable.
2. The child must be
between the ages of 3 and 18
3. The illness must be
verified by a licensed physician.
4. The child must not have
received a wish from any other organization.
Some of the wishes of these dying
children have been shopping sprees, computers, and the most requested
wish of all, a trip to Disney World. The family is always
included in these wishes, memories are so important.
After the wish has been granted the
children are not filed and forgotten. Through the Wish
Enhancement Program more fun events are provided for
the child and the family. These have been everything from tickets to
sporting events, movies, and circuses to trips to the zoo or picnics.
This continues to provide the children with events to look forward
to and more memories for the family.
Fund raisers and private donations
support them. They also receive some support from businesses and
We chose them as our charity because it's People
from Michigan helping Children in Michigan.
