February is Disney Compassion Month

A wish child meets Mickey Mouse!
The steadfast support Disney provides to Make-A-Wish® dates back to the first official wish kid, Frank “Bopsy” Salazar, whose wish was granted in 1981. In 2015, Disney and Make-A-Wish will grant its 100,000th global wish together. Last year, more than 7,000 wishes involved Disney’s help, and every year, Disney continues to enrich the lives of wish kids around the world by bringing them hope, strength and joy. 

The timeless bonds and memories Disney has created have helped kids through treatments, helped them overcome doubts and despair, and helped them feel and get better – because wishes work wonders.

  • Despite the rain this past Saturday, over 500 people within the Harborfields Community gathered together for their 13th Annual Walk For A Wish event to help grant 12-year old Frank's wish to go to Atlantis in the Bahamas! Through their support over $19,000 was raised allowing us to grant wishes for two children. Our sincerest thanks to the students, families and teachers at Thomas J Lahey Elementary School and Washington Drive Primary School.
