Let's Grant Wishes Questions

What is Let's Grant Wishes?
The Learning Experience’s philanthropy program teaches children that: It doesn’t matter how big or small you are, it's the size of your heart that matters.
Let’s Grant Wishes is an initiative that teaches children about the powerful life lesson of philanthropy through unique art experiences that create hope and help grant wishes for children battling critical illness.
To celebrate a month of wishes with Make-A-Wish, Let’s Grant Wishes encourages the TLE® community to raise a $40 donation per little learner to bring hope to wish kids in April. Help show TLE little learners the positive impact they can have on the lives of other children by supporting Let's Grant Wishes and Make-A-Wish® today
