Information
The Make-a-Wish Foundation makes dreams come true, with the help of notable and generous athletes-including the foundation's Chief Wish Ambassador, superstar Michael Jordan. Over the past two decades, Jordan has granted more than 175 wishes to children. In this book Jordan, along with 25 other athletes, share the secrets of strength and resilience each has learned. At the heart of these stories, you'll find the challenges, victories, joys, and tears that sum up the experience of wish granting. As a whole, <I>Wish Granted</I> focuses on the uplifting power of our ability to offer hope and joy to others. Additionally, the athletes' stories (each of which is illustrated with a photo) offer candid and touching insight into the personalities of the featured stars and superstars. But the purpose of the book is not just to inspire us-it is also to raise money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. All author proceeds from the book will be donated to the foundation-and the athletes will participate in book promotion pro bono. Sports fans will get a fascinating glimpse into the personal lives of their favorite superstars. <I>Wish Granted</I> is a celebration of the strength and courage of the human spirit in the face of great challenge.
