The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a global non-profit organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Airbnb first partnered with Make-A-Wish to donate accommodations, but this year, we’re matching children’s wishes to awesome experiences around the globe. We granted one wish a month in 2015, one wish a week in 2016, and now we’re on track to hit one wish a day!
Luke Edmunds is a 13-year-old with Acute Myeloblastic Leukemia. His lifetime dream is to become a professional chef in Paris to learn the art of French cooking. Partnering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Airbnb experiences helped Luke and his family live out his dream. One year out of remission, he traveled to the City of Lights, received cooking classes from a French chef, and visited famous Parisian landmarks. You can read more about his story here.
We want to continue fulfilling dreams for more kids like Luke. Our vision is to provide an unforgettable experience for every Wish kid that travels on Airbnb.
If you’d like to get involved, fill out this form. If your experience matches a wish, one of our Social Impact team members will be in touch.
Thank you for helping us make dreams come true!
