With some thoughtful preparation on your part today, you can bring hope, strength and joy to some very sick children tomorrow.

When You Wish Upon A Star has a simple and straightforward mission. It aims to grant the Wishes of children who have a life threatening illness and who, with their families, are living under a shadow. Dreams are very precious to all of us and by making their Wish come true is a real incentive for the sick child and their family and is often the inspiration needed to maintain the family's strength.


How You Can Leave Money to Grant a Child's Wish

There are three different kinds of gift:

  • Residuary Legacy - the residue or part residue of your estate, after all debts and legacies are paid.
  • Pecuniary Legacy - a specified amount of money
  • Specific Legacy - an item of value such as a house, furniture or items of value such as jewellery or an antique
