AEG’s LA Kings recently teamed up with Make-A-Wish Foundation to host a one-of-a-kind birthday party for 11-year-old LA Kings fan Christiann Villa on Sept. 9 at Toyota Sports Performance Center in El Segundo, Calif.
U.S. wish-granting organization Make-A-Wish America is on a cloud journey to digitally transform the wish-granting experience for children with critical illnesses.
Grant a Wish or Upgrade? Wishes can’t wait for children battling critical illnesses. For these kids, a wish can help them feel better and give them the hope and strength they need to fight harder against an illness.
This is why Make-A-Wish wants to grant the wish of every eligible child – to ensure they experience the impossible. Currently, Make-A-Wish only has the resources to be able to grant wishes to half of the 27,000 children diagnosed with a critical illness.
For 11 years, Subaru of America, Inc. has donated $118 million to charity through its annual Share the Love Event, creating smiles and transforming the lives of thousands of people. Of those funds, Make-A-Wish® has received more than $16.4 million to grant more than 1,800 wishes.

Whirlpool group raises money for charities, in its own way
BENTON HARBOR — Jasper Huff smiled when he was brought into a room where everyone was wearing Mickey Mouse ears.
The 3-year-old and his family were taken to the upstairs cafeteria at Whirlpool Corp.’s Riverview Campus on Thursday, where he was treated to a send-off party courtesy of the home appliance maker and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
The cafeteria was transformed into a “glimpse of Disney” for a reason. Jasper had brain cancer and was 10 months into remission. He and his family were heading to Disney World where Jasper would meet Mickey Mouse.
Sometimes hope comes from unexpected places, like a child’s wish. Charlotte is a 9-year-old from Modesto, CA, who lives with a heart condition, gene mutation, and blindness in one eye. Like many kids her age, she enjoys ballet and gymnastics. But, from a young age, she’s also had the burden of many doctor appointments, hospital stays and surgeries.
On Tuesday, July 14, four Make-A-Wish® wish kids will attend the Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Cincinnati. Attending the event will be a wish come true for the boys who wished to witness baseball’s mid-season showcase in person. But this is just one of the many baseball related wishes that Make-A-Wish grants to children with life-threatening medical conditions every year.
Five children with life-threatening medical conditions from across the country had the same wish – to meet the Power Rangers. These kids had their wishes granted by Make-A-Wish® when they not only were named Junior Rangers, but also got the chance to join forces with the Power Rangers to defeat a team of villains who were trying to shut down Power Morphicon, a bi-annual Power Rangers fan-run convention in Pasadena, CA.
Ever since he was a young child, Ryan Meiry always had a special wish – to meet Micky Arison, chairman of Carnival Corporation & plc and managing general partner of the two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat. Keenly interested in entrepreneurs and the corporate world, Ryan became fascinated with Arison’s life story and captivated by business leaders who start from the bottom and go on to become successful.
When I walked into the room and was greeted by almost life-sized Mickey and Minnie Mouse balloons waving at me, I knew I was in for a treat.
More than 25 employees from our R&D Information Technology group had organized a Disney-themed wish “reveal” party for six Philadelphia children and their families scheduled to travel to Disney World this spring thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
