      As an ambassador of Make a Wish I was honored to attend their annual crystal ball on Saturday. To say there were a few tears is an understatement. It was truly incredible to see the difference this charity make in peoples lives.

      Make-A-Wish Ireland has one simple aim to grant the wishes of children aged between 3 and 17 years living with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. A wish granted is true magic for the child, providing respite from their normal routines of hospitals, doctors and treatment.

      When I returned I posted on Facebook and a friend of mine posted that Make – a-Wish had granted a wish for her sister Niamh before she passed away and when I spoke to her today she described to me how special the day was for everyone. It was the first time in ages her parents had a meal out and every single person in the family was made feel special. Susan O’Dwyer the CEO is so passionate about Make-a Wish and after Saturday night I truly know why.

      Among the guest were Imelda May who sang 4 songs although we could have listened to her all night. What an incredibly talented lady. She had her family with her and it was such a pleasure to meet them all. Lucy Kennedy, Lorraine Keane, Deborah Veale and Photographer Jenny Mc Carthy were also there. Jennys hubby and Lucy’s sidekick Martin King was the host for the evening and did an incredible job full of empathy and love listening to some heartbreaking stories. Ireally don’t know how he did it. I also bumped into the lovely Norah Casey as well as some great friends old and new.

      If you would like to help grant a wish you can ext 50300 to “MYWISH” and donate €4 to make a dream come true!!
