Children's Wish changes policy on denying wishes to Million Dollar Smiles families

Good news for our families! The Children's Wish Foundation ("Children's Wish") has changed their policy on denying a wish to children who have already received a playground from Million Dollar Smiles. They will now grant a wish to an eligible child that has received a playground or gift from Million Dollar Smiles. If your child had previously been denied a wish under their old policy, please contact them and they would be happy to discuss granting them a wish. Thank you to Children's Wish for reviewing and revising this policy, and opening up this wonderful opportunity for more families!
