MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION
“We want to honor her memory by doing what she wanted to do: bring a moment of happiness and hope to suffering children. It is for this reason that we have decided to commit ourselves and bring the wonderful mission of Make-A-Wish to Italy as well. We are sure that our Carlotta is happy with what we are doing and we feel that she is guiding us from above with her unforgettable smile. "

As they say at Christmas everyone is better, so we decided to make ours, but also your Christmas, Supportive, and help less fortunate children, who may not be able to celebrate Christmas like all of us. For this we have decided to donate € 2 for each order carried out on our site, but why did we at e-Truria choose make a wish?

For a child suffering from a serious or chronic disease, facing life can be very difficult: heavy care, frequent hospitalization make him lose his life as a child, carefree and sometimes even the will to live.
A serious illness disrupts the life of a child and that of his family. The child loses contact with the normal world, catapulted into a reality made up of repeated hospitalizations, very painful treatments, anxiety and worry. Critically ill children lose their right to experience their childhood and, often, they fall into a deep depression that slowly causes them to lose strength.
A fulfilled wish not only brings a moment of joy and lightheartedness, but often also has an incredible positive impact from a clinical point of view. Many children have rediscovered hope, forgotten strengths and are healed.
Every day Make-A-Wish® Italy commits itself with passion, dedication and professionalism to fulfill his heart's desire to give him a better life and help him find hope.
