Make-A-Wish Arizona

We’re on a mission to make a BIG impact! July-September, you can purchase a Make-A-Wish star (or two😜) in the studio for $1 each. In addition to purchasing stars, you can also choose to round up your change. Funds raised will help this wonderful organization grant life-changing Wishes to kids in our communities. This year, we are going above & beyond to help more Wishes be granted. As You Wish will be matching all donations, dollar for dollar!

Community

As You Wish is committed to giving back to our community and fostering a sense of goodwill and belonging while providing a safe, fun-filled environment for our customers and employees. We are proud to offer a space to the community, where relationships can be built and nurtured. From a parent and child painting together on an after-school date, to the team at the office attending a team-building event, to local Girl Scouts working on their badges, and everyone in between, we aim to provide meaningful experiences for all to cherish.

Within our As You Wish Community, we hope to inspire connection with loved ones and share ideas on how you can foster relationships within your own community. Be it through a simple day of pottery painting to larger fundraising or corporate events, we are thrilled to offer opportunities to facilitate or support the communities around us.

We hope you enjoy your experience at As You Wish and decide to come back and share it with your community!

Girl Scouts Arizona Cactus Pine Council

As You Wish is the proud recipient of the 2018 Girl Scout Promise Award.

By getting involved n the Girl Scout Community we have learned that there is a lot more to Girl Scouts than cookies and camp! Girl Scouts believes in building girls of Courage, Character and Confidence! That’s something As You Wish believes in too! Girls Scouts can come in to any As You Wish to earn their Potter Badge or just have a fun outing with their troop. As You Wish raises funds for the Girl Scouts in a variety of ways. You will also see us at the annual Girl Scouts Badge Bash – our hand-painted cookie jars are auctioned off to raise funds for the Arizona Cactus Pine Council, we have also held Round Up For Charity and 20% Give Back Events for the Arizona Cactus Pine Council.  Next time you see a Girl Scout – ask them what they’ve learned through scouting – we’re sure you’ll be just as impressed as we are!

Big Brothers Big Sisters

Big Brothers Big Sisters is not your typical organization. They seek to help children realize their potential and build their futures. For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics. Today’s youth face a variety of challenges, and being matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister can help them navigate these challenges and reach their potential.
