Not only is the Make-A-Wish foundation an absolutely wonderful cause but it really is something that God would be thankful we did. These kids weren't blessed like other children to live normal healthy lives so it gives them a chance to essentially feel that freedom and happiness and to escape the pain of their everyday life. I feel like the foundation allows a more graceful transition into heaven for the children, because in heaven they can have any wish they want. It gives them a glimpse of the everlasting happiness that is to come if God were to decide to take them away.
