“A dream is a wish your heart makes”
About a week ago, I helped Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity fulfil a little girls wish to meet Hello Kitty!
The wish took place in Harrods where this little girl met her idol, Hello Kitty, and spent time shopping with her. I played the role of Hello Kitty as we spent the day shopping & having fun!
The day started with a meet & meet greet from Hello Kitty, after having said hello to the whole family and having posed for pictures, we then headed up to the toy kingdom where Hello Kitty helped her shop! – She knew exactly what she wanted and we definitely “shopped until we dropped” The family then headed to the Disney Cafe for lunch and we met them again in the beauty salon, where Kitty watched her have her hair and nails done.
The wish child was incredibly sweet and clearly a huge fan of Hello Kitty, she had trouble with her sight, which meant that I had to be in close contact with her throughout the day so that she could see Kitty. She spent a lot of time holding Kitty’s hand and asked a lot of questions. The wish family were ever so lovely and all very overwhelmed by the whole event and experience.
Harrods were absolutely amazing, giving her star treatment and many gifts, including a Hello Kitty suitcase! Seeing the staff come together and make the day so special for her was lovely to see and what better place to shop with Hello Kitty than in Harrods aye!
Having had a wish myself it was so special & exciting to be a part of someone else’s and watch the whole family benefit from the work that Rays of Sunshine do – It’s a real honour to be an ambassador for them.
Giving up a little of my time to be a part of a really unique wish, that meant so much to the child and her family was a truly humbling experience and something I would definitely do again!!
