By: Raphaël Lechallier, Program Architect, Salesforce France

Make-A-Wish Foundation grants once-in-a-lifetime wishes to children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions so as to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. This wish can be a game-changer. It makes children’s lives happier, and everyone involved – bringing back hope and the ability to fight harder against their illnesses.

Through donation and discount programme, Make a Wish France is granted donated and discounted Salesforce licenses helping them power their mission and accelerate their impact.

The is committed to supporting Make-a-Wish France and to ensure its team is getting the maximum value from these licenses. Through our pro bono programme in France, a group of Salesforce employees volunteered their time to enhance the Make-a-Wish Foundation’s information system which is powered by Salesforce. Make-a-Wish France is now better able to manage their contacts, interactions, donations, wishes, fundraising activities and can report on all these activities within Salesforce.

Make-A-Wish is looking for Salesforce volunteers

Anybody can engage with Make a Wish and bring some added value to their donated licenses. For me, it was an enriching personal experience and a great opportunity to support our Foundation framework. Each and every individual contribution is hugely important.

Although we all have heavy calendars, making time to volunteer is doable. Booking regular spots makes this even more manageable. So, make a difference now and sign up to volunteer with Make-a-Wish France. Salesforce employees can log their hours in Volunteerforce.

After Make-A-Wish Foundation was set up in the United States, interest in granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions quickly spread to other nations. In 1993, Make-A-Wish International was officially formed to serve five countries outside the U.S. – and now helps to serve children in nearly 50 countries across five continents. With the help of generous donors and over 32,000 volunteers, Make-A-Wish has collectively granted approximately more than 334,000 wishes worldwide since 1980.
