Make-A-Wish Luxembourg is granting its 19th wish this coming weekend, and the public can help make it extra special.
The group has been granting wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses for more than three years now.
This Sunday 2 October Make-A-Wish Luxembourg will the make the wish of Alexandre, a five year old diagnosed with leukemia, come true. Alexandre would like to be a superhero.
The organisation said in a press announcement: “Over twenty volunteers have created a real-life scenario in which the Luxembourg Police will approach Alexandre for his help. The Joker has kidnapped Alexandre’s fairy (a nurse from Centre Hôpital Luxembourg) to magically open the vaults at ING. Only our superhero Alexandre will be able match wits and use his superpowers to bring the evil Joker to justice.”
“We invite the public to support Alexandre as he tames some of the Joker’s frightening associates, a group of bikers, at the Place de Clairefontaine at 13:45 and to witness the dramatic capture of the evil Joker at the ING headquarters on Route d’Esch at 15:15,” Make-A-Wish Luxembourg stated.
The group depends on corporate sponsors like ING, but also members of the Grand Duchy’s medical community and on charitable donations, to make the wishes come true.
