The fact is today, as it was 14 Years ago when the Net Wish project was launched, too many honest hardworking American families struggle to make ends meets and, through no fault of their own, find themselves in serious financial trouble.
Net Wish understands that relief from a relatively modest pressing need can make the world of difference to a life and family...
About Net Wish!
Net Wish is not a traditional non-profit organization or charity. Net Wish is the brain child of a successful Philadelphia area businessman who wishes to remain completely anonymous.
The only motive behind this site is to help the less fortunate in our community and absolutely no tax benefit is received for the Wishes fulfilled.
Ultimately, the hope is that NetWish.org will act as a catalyst and inspire other people to do similar acts of kindness.
Net Wish looks to remove the red tape of traditional non-profit organizations and use the power of the Internet to provide direct and immediate assistance to families and individuals who desperately require a modest helping hand.
Our specific focus is how the aid will benefit children, older adults and other vulnerable members of our community.
Request for wishes are reviewed and applicants who have a request accepted may be contacted directly. Again, the donor wishes to remain anonymous and all applicant information and requests will remain strictly private.
Remember, the more specific the request the better chance of a helping hand.
Net Wish receives thousands of wishes and we simply can't answer all. We care and we try!
At Net Wish we rely on the honesty of the applicants. Fraudulent applications waste time and take help away from people who honestly need it.
We like to think that Net Wish is where need and action meet.

To whom it may concern:
Words cannot express our sincere gratitude for the $200 gift we received on behalf of our son N### who has a serious illness. We are more than grateful at your kindness. We immediately applied this money to his medical bills.
We thank you again for the assistance.

DEC 16th - $200 Gift Check Sent
I am asking for help with our rent. We have been unable to pay our rent this month which is $298.00. My husband is the only one working, I have been looking for a job but have been unable to find one. We have two small children ages 3 and 4 and are afriad of loosing our house. The total rent here is $895.00. But my parents and my brother moved in with us to try to help out, But it has not helped. Our landlord is starting to get impaitent with us. My parents and my brother have been unable to pay their part this month, but if we can get atleast part of the rent, maybe they will give us more time to come up with the rent. We are doing what we can to keep our utilities on, and all our daughters have for christmas is a care bear for each of them. Wich we can deal with, not having a place to live we can not. Thank you for your time. And even if you can not help us we appriciate you taking time to read this. Thanks, EW
