The Rainbow Connection
Posted By: Joe Wrobel (July 24, 2020)
The Rainbow Connection makes wishes come true for Michigan children with life threatening medical conditions. In addition, we provide support services to eligible wish families in need.
In 1985, The Rainbow Connection was incorporated as a wish granting organization. Our first wish was granted when Muhammed Ali shadow-boxed bed-side with Wish Child, John Bowden at Children's Hospital.
Since that first wish, we have granted the wishes of more than 3,600 Michigan children as well as provided special assistance, enhancements, and support to our wish families when needed.
I have seen first hand the positive impact and excitement generated by granted wishes for these families during their child's time of need.
Rainbow Connection has a mid 90 percent financial stewardship rating from charity navigator charity rating service.
