Mission: 
To provide every foster child in Texas counties Tarrant, Parker,
Johnson, Erath, Palo Pinto, Hood and Somervell with the
Best Christmas possible.

Christmas Wish Project "CWP" is a volunteer 501c3 nonprofit, no-frills project with 100

percent of donations going toward the mission.

 

We work under the guidance of “Keep it simple … Don’t lose focus.”

For two months every year, CWP operates without insurance, office space, supplies

or even a post office box, to give Tarrant County foster children the best Christmas

possible. There’s no middleman or overhead costs.

 

The Tarrant County and DFW Foster Parents Associations, Chosen Ones, Our

Community Our Kids (OCOK) and other foster care agencies distribute CWP information

to foster parents. The parents then fill out an online application about their foster child

and the child’s wish. CWP volunteers search for, purchase and organize those wishes to

be distributed in time for Christmas morning.

Through generous supporters, CWP establishes its base in a donated warehouse to

organize purchases for gift pick-ups.

Savvy CWP shoppers utilize every coupon, credit card offer, and connection to

stretch donations to the fullest. Gifts are available for pick up by the foster parents

well before Christmas, allowing them to play Santa with their foster children on

Christmas Day, just like a real family.
 

The idea is simple. Help foster parents make precious, long-lasting memories for

their foster child.  While many of the children wish for their first bike and older

teens wish for gift certificates to buy stylish clothing, the result is the same: foster

children enjoying a simple childhood rite of passage that many of us take for granted.
 

In 2019, CWP granted wishes for more than 1,200 foster children.

With your generosity, CWP can continue making a difference in the lives of children across Texas.

 

In the Spirit of Giving,
