Celebrating wishes with Aladdin

HELP A CHILD #FriendLikeMe CHALLENGELIFE-CHANGING WISHES | MOMENTS THAT MATTER

In celebration of the release of Walt Disney Studios’ much anticipated new movie “Aladdin”, Disney and Make-A-Wish® launched a global wish campaign to celebrate and promote the power of wishes. The campaign included a number of global, regional and local activities, many of which fans of Disney and the movie could join in and play their part.

Disney and Make-A-Wish have a long-standing history and since 1980 Disney has helped fulfil more than 130,000 wishes for children with critical illnesses around the world. For more than 37 years, we’ve seen how a wish can play a critical role in a child’s treatment, replacing fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope.

The campaign is part of The Walt Disney Company’s global commitment to deliver comfort and inspiration to families with children facing serious illness. Together we work with others to help build emotional resilience, leveraging the power of our brand, storytelling and characters to inspire and create Moments that Matter for children and those closest to them, who need it most.
