The Foundation MIN STORA DAG
The goal of MinStoraDag, (My Big Day), is to grant wishes to critically ill children (3-18yrs) who are suffering from life-threatening diseases. The foundation’s work is unique as each child is actively involved in planning his or her own wish.
What makes MinStoraDag unique is that, with the cooperation of Sweden’s University Hospitals, the child’s primary physician, working with the child and their family, refers the children and their wishes to the foundation which, in turn, helps make their wishes come true!
MIN STORA DAG’s Activities and Wishes:
A wish for a Big Day can vary a lot: Fanny, a child of 10, now has a puppy; Emma, who is 4, took a trip with her family to visit relatives in distant lands. Johan, 13 years old, travelled to Legoland in Denmark with his family where he also got to meet the famous football player, Henke Larsson, for a few hours and was a VIP guest at a game.
In addition, the foundation makes it possible for smaller groups of children to attend pop concerts, circus-shows, motor-shows and other special events. They also arrange camps which include sailing and other sporting activities.
In 2011 MinStoraDag completed 550 projects Big Days, group activities and camps.
The foundation’s Patron and Ambassadors:
