    To Celebrate Disney’s Aladdin,

    Join the #FriendLikeMe Challenge

    In Disney's Live Action Film, Aladdin, Everything Starts with a Wish

    You can make wishes come true. Starting today, you can join Disney and Will Smith in the #FriendLikeMe challenge to help grant more wishes!

    Where there’s a wish, there’s a way to help children with critical illnesses. If you were the Genie in Disney’s Aladdin and had the chance to grant 3 heartfelt wishes for someone, who would you share them with? Tag a friend on Twitter and/or Instagram. For every public post with #FriendLikeMe from April 29 - May 24, 2019, Disney Worldwide Services will donate USD 5 up to USD 1 million to Make-A-Wish® to help grant life-changing wishes all over the world.

    Since 1980, Disney has helped Make-A-Wish grant more than 130,000 wishes - experiences that not only brighten lives for a special moment, but also help wish children and their families replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope.

    Where there's a wish there's a way




    For children battling a critical illness, a wish is not just a dream. A wish-come-true can be a turning point in their lives. It can give children the emotional and physical strength to keep going – to fight harder against their illness. Wishes allow children and their families to focus on the possibilities of tomorrow and not on the challenges of today.

    Join us throughout the month of April, in honor of World Wish Day® on April 29, as we celebrate the hundreds of thousands of life-changing wishes that have been granted and the thousands still to come.

    World Wish Day



    April 29 is World Wish Day, an annual day of recognition and celebration of the wish granted to Chris Greicius in 1980 that inspired the creation of Make-A-Wish and its mission. Since then, the Make-A-Wish community has grown to over 45,000 volunteers and 30,000 wishes globally every year.

    That is a wish every 17 minutes.

    We could never do this alone.

    We want to thank the donors, volunteers and doctors that every day help us make the impossible possible for these children. Together, we can give children the strength to fight, to get better – to grow up.

    Join us this World Wish Day, and help us continue to transform the lives of children with critical illnesses.
