About The Sunshine Foundation
The Sunshine Foundation strives to bring joy to children who need it most and have granted more than 40,000 dreams since it began 43 years ago. The Sunshine Foundation is the nation’s original wish granting organization founded in 1976 by Philadelphia police officer Bill Sample. Bill was assigned to a local children’s hospital and wanted to assist the families of critically and terminally ill children. Sunshine Foundation’s sole purpose is to answer the dreams of chronically ill, seriously ill, physically challenged and abused children, ages 3 to 18, whose families are unable to fulfill their requests due to the financial strain the child’s illness may cause.
