“Wish Party” sends two kids on the trips of their dreams

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Two siblings living with a debilitating disease are about to see their wishes come true. Ten-year-old Matthew and six-year-old Jackson were the guests of honor at a “Wish Party” at Party City. Both boys have an inherited skeletal disorder; but that’s not stopping them from packing their bags for vacations of a lifetime. Matthew is heading to the Big Apple, New York City. Jackson’s going to the happiest place on earth, Disney World!

Jackson“I’m gonna be able to see Mickey and Goofy, and I’m gonna be able to go on all the rides!” said Jackson. All month long, Party City is collecting donations for Make-A-Wish. It’s selling paper stars that people can write their names on to hang on the store’s walls.
