Make A Wish, Erika!

We were eating at the lobby when Steffie pointed us to the president of Make a Wish Foundation. Jenny and I asked her to introduce us so that we may offer any kind of assistance it may need. 

Khalil told us that they are going to have a small event at Salon De Ning of The Peninsula Manila where the foundation's 1000th wish will be granted. 
Erika, 13, has undergone brain surgery 3 times already because of a brain tumor. Her wish is to become a fashion designer and Make A Wish decided to go all out in making her wish come true!

With the help of Teresa Herrera, Sara Black and Rajo Laurel and The Peninsula Manila, Erika's wish became a reality! 

Here's Erika's twin sister, her auntie and uncle who took care of the girls.

Erika came out in a hot pink and shiny gown that she designed and House of Laurel made for her. 

It also happens that last Monday was their birthday and so a HUGE cake, balloons and Peninsula mascot came out to surprise her and her twin sister.

The smiles on their faces was enough to make Joie, Jenny and I be a volunteer for Make A Wish. If you want to be part of this awesome foundation, please let me know so I can inform you when the assembly is.

What a great event!
