September 19, 2016: The Amsterdam Photo Club was proud to be working together with the Make-A-Wish foundation during the Dam tot Damloop this weekend. Their organisation does great work all over the world, granting wishes of children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions.
Make-A-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We seek to bring every eligible child’s wish to life because a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight their illness. Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, Make-A-Wish is the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization, serving children in more than 50 countries worldwide. Together, generous donors, supporters, staff and more than 40,000 volunteers grant a wish every 17 minutes, on average, somewhere in the world. Since 1980, Make-A-Wish has granted nearly 450,000 wishes to children; more than 30,000 last year alone.
