Make-A-Wish Connecticut will celebrate World Wish Day on April 29, the 38th anniversary of the wish that inspired the founding of the organization. In preparation for the milestone achievement, Make-A-Wish chapters and affiliates worldwide are joining forces for a month-long campaign with the theme: “It takes more than magic, it takes muscle” to grant wishes.
The campaign kicks off today, April 2, with the release of a brand-new set of PSAs. The PSAs feature Make-A-Wish kids, including a superhero, mermaid, pop star, marine, astronaut and makeup artist, showing off the emotional, psychological and physical muscle they gained from their wish experience. The wish kids appear alongside WWE® Superstar John Cena, who has granted 580 wishes, more than any other person. Celebrity wish granters Johnny Depp — whose support through wish granting and fundraising at studio premieres and movie screenings spans 30 years — and Steve Harvey, a longtime wish granter, lent their voices to the PSAs as well.
