Charity foundation Make-A-Wish celebrated its first anniversary at Yunspace on the Bund in Shanghai on September 8, helping nearly 30 children with serious diseases to fulfill their wishes.

Japanese science fiction cartoon figure Ultraman appeared at the ceremony, bringing joy, power and hope to the children. To see Ultraman face to face was also one of their wishes.

Some of their other wishes include: “I want to ride a dinosaur,” “I want to experience the life of the ancients,” “I want to take a double-decker to the zoo to feed animals,” or simply “I want a gift from the sky.”

“The strength of wishes is extraordinary, and the children with the wishes tend to show stronger will to overcome their illness,” said Jerry Huang, board chairman of Make-A-Wish Shanghai.

“We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the charity, and with passion and faith, we will help more children with serious diseases to fulfill their wishes and let them feel love and hope in the face of difficulties,” Huang added.

Make-A-Wish Shanghai was founded by Walter Disney (China), Ferrari China, The Peninsula Shanghai and AIG in June, 2017. On September 8 of the year, Make-A-Wish Shanghai fulfilled a wish of a child, which was the first wish accomplished by the organization. And Make-A-Wish Shanghai plans to fulfill the wishes of nearly 60 children in the near future.
