Amarante's Winter Wonderland

With over 120,000 lights in full color, Amarante's is the perfect way to kick off your holiday season while also making wishes come true for kids battling life-threatening medical conditions. And on December 17th, it is officially Make-A-Wish Night. We will have a table set up and 100% of donations will go to our chapter, and you may even get to meet a local Wish Kid and their family!

Joe's Amazing Lights

For over 15 years, Joe Petrowski has been decorating his home in Guilford, CT with thousands of lights for the holidays. More recently, he has synchronized the displays to music and collects monetary donations for local and national charities. This year, 100% of donations will be in support of Make-A-Wish Connecticut!

Make-A-Wish Holiday Cards

Send cards inspired by wish kids, available in pre-packaged assortments, bulk customized cards, photo cards and more. Contact Kim Smith at for more information. Share with your friends and family that this season, you've helped to make a wish come true!

Estate Giving

A planned gift, such as a bequest in your will or trust, stock donation or life insurance designations ensures your support for the children we serve well into the future. You'll create a legacy that will impact our wish kids for years to come. This holiday season, include Make-A-Wish in your gift planning. Click here to learn more.


Shop To Give!

Whether for yourself or to give as gifts to friends and family, you can represent Make-A-Wish by shopping at our brand new online store! From t-shirts and hats to sweatshirts, Polos and other apparel, you'll share the power of a wish everywhere you go. Click here to shop to Make-A-Wish Apparel.

Donate Airline Miles

Over 70% of wishes involve air travel. You can help make those travel wishes come true by donating your unused airline miles to Make-A-Wish. Make-A-Wish can bundle donated miles together, so even if you only have a few to spare, know that you are becoming a part of something very big! Donate your unused miles to Make-A-Wish and help make travel wishes come true!
