Make-A-Wish Foundation® is an organization that began in 1980 after a group of kindhearted people came together to grant the wish of a terminally ill 7-year old to become a police officer. Since then, it has grown to become not only a nationally, but also internationally acclaimed institution, with affiliates in over 36 countries.
From the beginning, the mission of the foundation has remained constant: “to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy” (www.wish.org). Whether a child’s wish is to play for the first time in the snow or to visit Disneyland, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® makes every effort to make it come true.
There are memorable stories of children meeting their favorite rock star or singer after surviving brain cancer, as was the case for 17 year old Alexx Kipp who had a chance to meet Beatle Ringo Starr, or creating a new ice cream flavor for Cold Stone Creamery, just as 11 year old Kate did, stories that Make-A-Wish Foundation® helps come true for these children thanks to the support of donors and volunteers.
Proud Music believes in the mission of the foundation and that is why it has been a proud media partner of the Make-A-Wish Foundation Deutschland e.V. since 2008. On April 29, 2011 is was World Wish Day. Help us celebrate this day to continue making possible other children’s wishes!
