The World Wish Day usually starts with ringing opening bells at stock markets around the world. The Time Square Billboard in New York displays world wish stories. Fountains and buildings are lit up in Make-A-Wish colors. Special menus and cocktails are design to serve visitors at restaurants and hotels. Justin Bieber, Michael Jordan, John Cena and other celebrities excite children in the World Wish Day celebration with their appearances. All around the world special events and activities are organized and wishes are granted.

Relatively unimportant wishes positively impact the lives of children around the world.

Starting as a one-true-wish strengthens also the lives of people who make the wish come true.

Recently, the Make-A-Wish Foundation granted for 5 children a wish to meet the Thai idol and actress Yaya.

Writing about remarkable wishes, is the story to tell of Miles’ wish to be bat kid that created a real viral heartfelt movement. The City of Chicago assisted all the way along and closed the city of Chicago to style Miles’ wish in proportions that everyone dreams for. The next wish I wish to meet Snow White in Hong Kong is for a girl followed with other wishes on the list that includes wishes to meet with the prime minister, to have an I-pad, to fly to the moon, go to sea, go fishing and a long list more.

To make all these remarkable wishes come true, our valuable partners fulfil a crucial role in wish development and granting, providing the necessary hardware, resources, infrastructures, teams, services and funds. To support these corporate organizations with clear objectives, Make-A-Wish has created an exciting business workshop that let company teams in a competing element raise funds, develop and execute an unforgettable wish where the employees play a crucial role.
