HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The Make-a-Wish Foundation sponsors an annual event called World Wish Day, held on April 29.

Supporters can visit to donate dollars or frequent flier miles in just a few steps, according to a news release from the Make-a-Wish Foundation. In addition, WWE Superstar John Cena will personally match every frequent flier mile donated in April, up to $4.5 million. United Airlines will also support World Wish Day by matching the donations of its MileagePlus members, up to 3 million miles, through April 30.

"Air travel is a critical resource as we work to grant the heartfelt- and oftentimes very creative- wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions," said Russell Smith CEO of Make-A-Wish South Carolina. "Donating airline miles or dollars will allow us to continue creating thousands of lasting moments for children with life-threatening medical conditions."
