Many sick kids dream…
…about leaving the confines of their hospital beds to be a part of the glitz and glamour that is the world of a celebrity. Often, that is the wish we hear from our Wish Kids when we ask them to dream big…..”If you could meet anyone, who would you that be?”
Over the course of the twenty years Kids Wish Network has been granting wishes, we’re reached out to some very famous celebs, far and wide, asking them to participate in a kid’s wish by simply giving the gift of their time.
Looking at who was in the limelight or on the front page at the time, our two decades of wish granting are evident. Our Wish Kids have had their dreams come true when they met superstars like Sir Paul McCartney and Beyonce. Sports greats like skateboarder Tony Hawk and all-pro quarterback Tom Brady. Entertainers like Howie Mandel and John Oliver.
For at least a little while, our Wish Kids “took a break” from their illnesses; their smiles were a little brighter, and the family has a memory of a special day to cherish forever.
Kids Wish Network, with your help, will continue to connect our superstars – our brave Wish Kids – with the stars who delight in their chance to brighten a sick kid’s life.
