Hello, my name is Ryan Koppy. I am currently 15 and in High School in Las Vegas. I am in National Honors Institute at my school, and my counselor suggested that I focus my community service on one organization for the next 3 years of my high school career. I decided to work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I chose Make-A-Wish because my dad is a long time friend of Dana and Kim Wagner, who are big supporters of the foundation. I met with Charly Mapes from Make-A-Wish of Southern Nevada and she said that the best way for high school kids to help is to fundraise. So, my Dad helped me create my very own non-profit organization to raise funds. I came up with the idea of having Make-A-Wish kids create art based on the wishes they were granted. I print their images on t-shirts, sell them online, and donate all of the net proceeds to Make-A-Wish. This is the first year of the program and our three Wish Kids did a great job creating the art. Hopefully you will find something you like. The t-shirts we use are very high quality, super soft and comfortable. It’s a great shirt for an even greater cause. I hope you enjoy what our website has to offer, and thank you for helping support a wonderful charity that helps make sick children’s lives better.
"Thank you all for supporting my charity, Make-A-Wish Tees. I am so very grateful to all of you that bought t-shirts and made donations. On May 29th, I presented a check to Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada for $20,700 from my second campaign. That brings the total for my first two campaigns to $31,035!!"

My name is Ryan Koppy.
I’m currently 16 years old and attend high school in Las Vegas. One year ago, Dana & Kim Wagner put me in touch with Charly Mapes at Make-A-Wish® Southern Nevada. Since that time, a lot of great things have happened. My Dad helped me set up my very own 501(c)(3) non profit organization to raise money for Make-A-Wish. I came up with the idea of having Wish Kids create art that I print on t-shirts. I sell the t-shirts through this website, with 100% of net proceeds and donations going to Make-A-Wish. My first campaign was a great success. I was able to raise enough funds to sponsor a wish for a very sick young boy, Lucas. You can read more about Lucas by clicking here. The feeling I had when I presented the check to Make-A-Wish, knowing that I was going to grant a wish…it was incredible. There were a lot of teary eyes at the ceremony. I’m starting my second of three campaigns now. We have three brand new pieces of art done by amazing Wish Kids. Also, we have three pieces of art created by professional artists. They were generous enough to donate images related to Lucas’s wish. All six of the images are wonderful, and give you a lot of t-shirt choices. The shirts we use are very high quality, super soft and comfortable. Those of you that got shirts last year know what I mean! I hope you enjoy what our website has to offer, and thank you SO much for supporting a wonderful charity that helps instill hope, strength, and joy to children battling life-threatening medical conditions.
