A wish granted
Fidenza Village supports Make-A-Wish®Italia Onlus
In the business of bringing magic to life, Make-A-Wish Italia Onlus fulfils the heart’s desires of children between the ages of 3 and 18 who suffer from life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.
From the moment a child is diagnosed, many of the simple pleasures of childhood are taken away. Make-A-Wish Italia Onlus believe that a child’s life shouldn’t just be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis – it should be about wonder, joy and hope. Whether it's starring in their own film, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a bedroom redesigned, through generous donations, volunteers and partnerships Make-A-Wish Italia Onlus is able to fulfil wishes to amazing children when they need it most.
When a wish is granted, it inspires a child to believe that anything is possible.
A wish is more than a moment in a child’s life – it fills the days, months and years afterwards. A fulfilled wish can have healing effects, bringing hope, strength and joy into these children’s lives while positively impacting those around them.
Make-A-Wish Italia Onlus was founded in 2004 by Fabio and Sune Frontani Schwenkbier, in memory of their daughter Carlotta, who passed at the age of 10 due to a serious illness. Based in Genoa and Milan, the organisation has a network of 250 volunteers who work closely with some of the most important children’s hospitals across the country. Together with its volunteers and donors, Make-A-Wish Italia Onlus has granted more than 2,300 wishes and will continue their mission into 2023.
Fidenza Village is partnered with Make-A-Wish Italia Onlus as part of The Bicester Collection's DO GOOD network of charitable organisations and social enterprises, all of which work to empower women and children.
