Mailing Wish Tag Gifts

When you package your gifts please make sure it is labeled with the full Wish Tag number so that we can match your gifts with the child you are sponsoring. If the Wish Tag number is not listed on the exterior of the package, we will not be able to match your gifts with the specific child you sponsored. Those items will then be placed on our shelves to be given to another child in need.

Please ship all items to:
