The Wish that Granted Make-A-Wish

For more than 30 years, Make-A-Wish has been granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions and Isagenix® wants to help.

Inspired by our vision to impact world health and free people from physical and financial pain, Isagenix is truly honored to create an ongoing sponsorship with Make-A-Wish to help raise money and awareness for this incredible cause.

The First Wish

Starting in 1980 as a grassroots nonprofit, Make-A-Wish came to life when a little boy named Chris Greicius, fighting leukemia, spoke about his dream to become a police officer. Lucky for Chris, he befriended Tommy Austin, a U.S. Customs Officer, who worked with the Arizona Department of Public Safety to make Chris’ wish come true.

Sadly, on May 3, 1980, three days after fulfilling his wish to be an honorary police officer for the day, Chris passed away. But not before leaving a lasting impression on his mother, Linda Bergendahl-Pauling, to pay it forward and help grant the wishes of other sick children worldwide.

Little did Chris know that his wish would be the inspiration for the largest wish-granting organization in the world!

The Impact

To date, Make-A-Wish has stayed steadfast to its mission, granting nearly 300,000 wishes worldwide.
