Most of us have likely pondered that one extreme thing we want to do before we die (sit next to Josh Groban on a piano bench while he serenades me, for example). And even though i’d LOVE for that to happen, it impresses me even more to see celebs making dreams come true for children in need.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation is notorious for making the unlikeliest of dreams come true, but for 14 children with life-threatening illnesses they got their wish of meeting Miley Cyrus.
The 18-year-old took a break from preparing for her upcoming Gypsy Heart concert tour to treat the kids to a makeover, a visit with Cyrus, and an exclusive performance during a dress rehearsal for the tour. How amazing is that?
The gesture was part of World Wish Day, which commemorates the founding of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. “We thank Miley Cyrus for celebrating World Wish Day again this year and spreading our unifying message of hope, strength and joy for children with life-threatening medical conditions,” said Make-A-Wish Foundation of America president and chief executive officer, David Williams. “Her support is helping these kids enjoy a better quality of life, and fulfilling their wishes gives them hope for the future.”
This isn’t Cyrus’ first time at the rodeo either, as the popstar has served as fairy godmother to more than 120 children with life-threatening medical conditions.
We think that’s pretty cool! (SNL parody reference, anyone?)
