Magic Lamp Foundation, in Budapest, Hungary, fulfils a single wish of children between 3-18 suffering from life-threatening conditions. Since its establishment in 2003, Magic Lamp has fulfilled more than 2,650 dreams thanks to its sponsors and 100+ volunteers. In 2014, the DM Thomas Foundation awarded Magic Lamp £3,500 by means of collecting micro-donations from Hilton guests in Hungary, which helped Magic Lamp make six dreams come true. One of them was a jubilee; Magic Lamp’s2500th wish fulfilled was that of Dora, 14, who received a professionally restored, 19th century Louis Otto violin.
Background: Last year the Hilton Worldwide Group in Hungary decided to help Magic Lamp Foundation in the realisation of wishes with DM Thomas Foundation’s approval. They have received HUF 1 425 606, and from this amount they could realise 6 wishes, among them a trampoline, a laptop and an Ipad.
They could also take Petra (15) and Noémi (10) to Paris, and even the 2,500th jubilee wish was fulfilled and 14 years old Dóra received a beautiful violin to boost her musical studies.
