Terms & Conditions
Updated May 2, 2013
One Simple Wish is an online wish registry that enables potential donors to grant a wish submitted by a deserving child or family in need through our network of Community Partners.
DONORS (Wish Granters)
Donors may browse wishes on our site without registering, however, in order to grant a wish, potential donors must register. Registration is required so that we may collect personal information needed to fulfill the wish such as donor name and contact information. Donors do not have to consent to have their names and other information shared with our Community Partners. They may choose to keep their information confidential. This option is available upon registration.
By registering with One Simple Wish, potential donors are not entering into any contract or promise of donation.
Once a donor selects a wish they would like to grant, that information is sent to One Simple Wish. The donor will then be contacted, if necessary, by One Simple Wish to make arrangements to receive the donation. At this time the donor is stating that they are interested in fulfilling the product, service or experience requested and/or of sending the monetary value of that product, service or experience to One Simple Wish. However this is not a binding agreement and they may at any time decide not to do so. If this should occur, the wish will be added back to our database of wishes that need to be fulfilled.
If the donor decides to send the actual product or service requested:
As of March 2011, One Simple Wish no longer offers this option.
For service and experience related wishes:
One Simple Wish will make every reasonable effort to arrange for the service or experience to take place between the donor and the Community Partner and/or individual. However if it becomes too difficult to make this arrangement or more than 30 days passes without any progress, One Simple Wish reserves the right to make alternative arrangements to ensure that the service or experience is provided or to apply funds to a new wish. Before any funds are applied to a new wish, One Simple Wish will contact the donor to choose another wish. If the donor does not respond within a reasonable time, approximately two weeks, One Simple Wish will select an alternative wish with criteria as close to the original wish as possible.
If the donor chooses to send the monetary value of the product, service or experience requested:
One Simple Wish makes every effort to provide the donor with the most accurate product, service or experience value available at the time the wish is made and/or granted. If One Simple Wish must purchase the product or service on behalf of the donor, the donor understands that any additional funds will be deposited into an account for One Simple Wish to use towards future donations as well as operating costs such as website database maintenance, shipping fees and others. All funds received by One Simple Wish are used 100% towards furthering the mission of the organization and at no time shall be accepted as profit, in accordance with non-profit organization status. If the funds collected for the product, service or experience are not sufficient enough to cover the total cost, One Simple Wish will use other organization funds to cover the additional expense.
COMMUNITY PARTNERS (Wish Makers)
Wishes are collected through Third Party Partners known as Community Partners. These Community Partners must be recognized and registered nonprofit organizations operating for at least one year. They must provide references and must apply to become a member of our network of Community Partners. All applications are reviewed by One Simple Wish and Community Partners are not eligible to make wishes on behalf of individuals until their applications are approved.
Community Partners understand that by making wishes on behalf of individuals they are certifying that this individual is in fact in need and that they maintain all responsibility if the individual is fraudulent in any manner.
By joining the network of Community Partners, Community Partners recognize that they are entering into a relationship with One Simple Wish that must be maintained for at least one year or until their wishes have been granted. If they sever their relationship with One Simple Wish prior to all wishes being granted, any outstanding wishes will be removed from the website. Community Partner's acknowledge that they are not entering into any other type of partnership, arrangement or agreement with One Simple Wish other than to make wishes on behalf of individuals and to have those wishes granted.
Community Partners agree to have their organization information displayed on One Simple Wish's website and in printed materials including but not limited to brochures, press releases and print advertisements. If at any time a Community Partner decides to sever their relationship with One Simple Wish, Community Partners understand that materials printed before the date the relationship ended may still be used and that those materials may include the Community Partner's organization name and other information. Further, One Simple Wish reserves the right to communicate past affiliation with these organizations to the public.
Community Partners understand that One Simple Wish will contact them once a donor makes a request to fulfill a wish they have submitted. Community Partners agree to be available to arrange for the delivery of the wish during the Community Partner's regular operating hours. One Simple Wish will make every effort to accommodate the schedule of the Community Partner but Community Partners are aware that fulfillment of certain wishes may need to occur on a weekend, in the evening or otherwise outside of the normal operating hours of the Community Partner and that they may need to be available at these times with advance notice.
Community Partners understand that One Simple Wish will make every effort to fulfill a wish within 30 days of the time that wish has been granted and covered by a donation for the full value of the wish.
Community Partners acknowledge that they will not receive any funds from One Simple Wish.
While every effort will be made to do so, One Simple Wish makes no guarantee that all wishes made will be granted.
