Storm troopers. Rebels. Darth Vader. The most memorable heroes and villains from the Star Wars movie franchise will be seen wandering Grafton Street today for a wonderful cause.
The Disney characters are out in force because today is the fifth annual Wish Day, where money is raised by Make-A-Wish Ireland to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses across the country.
You’ll see sci-fi costumed volunteers patrolling the busy street from 10am until 2pm today.
Make-A-Wish Ireland has recently granted its 2000th wish and with your help they do a whole lot more. Their aim is to raise more than €100,000 so they can meet their target of 210 wishes in 2017.
You can help make dreams a reality by buying a €2 wristband from one of Grafton Street’s Star Wars characters, making a one-off donation of €2 by texting WISHES to 50300, or donating online HERE.
We have a great feeling about this.
