Andy was a talented young musician. He had cancer. His greatest heartfelt desire was to record a self-written love song. When volunteers from Make-a-Wish brought him the news that “Preiser Records” wanted to fulfill his dream, he at first found it hard to believe.
Thanks to the well-coordinated collaboration of Make-A-Wish sponsors and volunteers, Andy’s heart’s wish was fulfilled.
Since the Foundation of the Austrian Make-A-Wish Foundation, more than 1,500 children’s wishes have already been fulfilled. This was made possible thanks to the help of our volunteers. Your contribution is also important to help a child like Andy realize his dream and put a smile on his face.

They visit the children, learn their heart’s desire with great sympathy, and fill out the necessary forms together with their parents and their doctor. In addition, they are responsible for implementing the wish , contacting the parents and, if necessary, seeking sponsors or organizing a supporting program to fulfill the child’s heart’s wish. In order to support in the area of Wish registration/Wish fulfillment, it is important to be able to deal well with children as well as to have creativity and organizational talent.
