Make A Wish

I had the privilege this past weekend to attend the Make-A-Wish first annual Christmas Party.  The Make-A-Wish Children's Charity is a non-profit organization founded to give terminally-ill, physically-disabled, and mentally-handicapped children an opportunity to "make a wish" and have their dreams come true. 

Several years back, I played a police officer on a Singapore Chinese drama called 城 市 英 雄 (City of Heroes).  One of these children's wish was to be a police officer and meet me so I made a videotape to wish him well.  I was really touched to see how happy he was to see me and the video I made for him.  On top of it, one of the organizers for the charity mentioned that they are still using the video, and I hear the Chinese drama is airing in Hong Kong so you might have even seen it if you are there.

I was invited to hand out the door gifts generously donated by NIKE, and I had such a great time seeing the smiles on all the happy children's faces as I greeted them upon their arrival.  There's always something really special about seeing a child's face light up and smile.  Absolutely Priceless.

You really realize that it doesn't take much to brighten up a child's life with simply smiling and just being nice.  We all had a great time at this fun-filled festive event, and I was really happy and fortunate to be involved with it.

So go out there and spread your Christmas cheer cuz it's always more meaningful when we all share!

awesome we have Make a Wish here too - such a great organisation. I agree about spreading Xmas cheer, its one of the reasons the Child Cancer Foundation in NZ do the shave your head thing in December - it's to try and give kids with cancer and their families a special Xmas aswell as general support.

It's so wonderful to have organizations like this and more wonderful to have celebrity supporters. My thanks to all who volunteer just to make a child smile. Especially the forgotten ones....thanks for making me smile, Allan, with this heart-felt blog. =)
