Girls receive star treatment on red carpet, get behind-the-scenes access
Multimedia with summary
Four teens got to meet some of their favorite celebrities both on and off the red carpet last weekend at the GRAMMYs. Each girl wished to attend the award show, but little did they know they would receive all that and more. Make-A-Wish filled their weekend with fun events, giveaways and a behind-the-scenes look into one of America's biggest live television events. The girls hugged Justin Bieber, received autographs from Adele and got their hair and makeup professionally done for the show.
Growing up, I was blessed with a healthy childhood but two close friends of mine were not as lucky. Many times I saw how their physical challenges hindered them from enjoying the same lifestyle as me. Seeing the challenges my friends and their families went thru to complete day to day activities, inspired me to help other children (and their families) overcome some of the same challenges.
