WHNT News 19 partnered with Make-A-Wish Alabama for a telethon to raise money for children with critical illnesses in our state.

While Make-A-Wish is a national non-profit, the money we raise in Alabama goes to Alabama children who are still waiting for a wish.  There are 250 across the state, 81 just in North Alabama.

The average wish cost is $8,000 and come with a wait time of six months to two years.  Their goal is to get the average wait time down to less than a year, which can happen with help from community support and donations.

The telethon may be over, but you can still donate anytime by clicking the donate graphic below, or by texting WISHES to 243725.
