Alexa had a dream of swimming with dolphins. She was excited about the fabulous trip to Malta where her wish would be fulfilled.
This was the first time for the girl to be on an airplane and the flight attendants made her flight really unforgettable. She had even an opportunity to meet the pilot and visit the cockpit.
We arrived to Malta and the amazing moments went on. From the airport, we were taken to the elegant Corinthia Hotel, where the hotel staff gave Alexa a warm welcome and she immediately became a VIP guest. The spacious room with the terrace overlooking the sea, the swimming pools under the palm trees, the delicious breakfast and the attention and kindness of the staff charmed the little girl, who felt like a real princess during those few days. Sightseeing tours were organised by the hotel to make her stay more enjoyable.
Finally, it was time for taking part in the the long-awaited program in the Marine Park.
Certainly, the sea lion show, the parrot show and the dolphin presentation all were very interesting, but the highlight of the day definitely was the Dolphin Interaction Program: Alexa got a special swimsuit, then a short training was held about how to communicate with the dolphins. A few minutes later she entered the seawater-filled pool, where she could joyfully and happily swim with her favourite animal, the dolphin.
Alexa’s dream came true and I am sure, this weekend will remain a life-long memory!

There are lots of excited traveling people, but there is a big boy out of everyone who is much more excited about flying than anyone else.
Jankó, 11 years old, had the dream of seeing his favorite team - including famous football players like Messi, Neymar or Mbappé - play football.
The Magic Lamp flew him to Paris to watch one of the matches of the Paris Saint-Germain team in its own stadium.
Even flying was a new and fantastic experience for him. He was escorted to the plane as a VIP guest, where he had the chance to visit the cockpit and to talk to the captain.
He was truly impressed by Paris itself and together with his father they visited every sight they could. And on the long-awaited day, he saw several of the world’s greatest football players in real life.
He was indescribable happy. He said,
“I would have never dreamed of making it to Paris, let alone sit in the stadium of the best team in the world, and watch them play while they were celebrated with a standing ovation by the fans. Thank you so much for the many experiences, smiles, kindness and last but not least the LOVE.”
We truly thank our supporters, the Wizz Air Hungary Ltd, the Marriott Budapest Hotel, the Hesse Trade Kft. and our private sponsors for being able to bring together such great joy to Janko and make his dream come true!

An old dream came true for Flóra on a weekend in May: she went to Disneyland, Paris.
Because of the closures, travel restrictions she could only day-dream about this trip for a long time but her enthusiasm didn’t shrink at all.
Despite the late night arrival she was exploring Disneyland from early morning till late night, immersing in its wonders. She really felt special as she did not have to wait in line ever, she was entitled to jump the queues and she could watch the parades, the evening fireworks from the best spot.
This was enhanced even more by the kindness of Wizzair: she was greeted with special attention on board, she could even explore the cockpit with the captain.
This weekend will remain a life-long memory for sure!

Football means everything to Benedek!
He plays in a team, regularly watches the matches, especially those of the Hungarian league, and knows everything about football. He would easily tell you the exact line-up of a large number of football teams worldwide, by heart. His dream was to attend a major international game, and he has managed to see no less than one of the most prestigious matches in the world, between Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid, in Madrid of course.
Even the travel to Madrid was exciting because this was the first time for Benedek to be on an airplane. Colleagues from Wizzair have done everything possible to make his flight unforgettable. He has received VIP treatment, he could learn about the aircraft and meet the pilot. Before the big game, he had some time to see the main sights in Madrid. He has enthusiastically strolled on the streets of Madrid’s downtown and could not possibly miss the famous Bernabeu stadium, the home of Real Madrid.
Of course, the most important experience was the match itself where the fans have created an incredible atmosphere and Benedek could see some of the world’s best players in real life!

His wish was soon granted and the little boy received the much-awaited tablet.

Levente was very handy even as a little boy. He likes to assemble or take things apart and then put them back together.
He is studying to be a car mechanic, and in addition to legos, he is increasingly involved in scientific modeling in his spare time. His other hobby is listening to a wide variety of music, mostly pop and retro music, but he also loves classical music. He wished for a speaker from Magic Lamp to take his musical experience to the next level.

Balázs is a very polite boy. Whenever we see him in his room at the hospital, he is always very attentive. He enjoys participating in various games and craft classes. But like many other teenagers, he loves the online space.
He likes to play various computer and car-driving games. So we weren't surprised when he asked for an X-BOX from Magic Lamp. We talked about his wish, and I registered it in the Magic Lamp's system.
Shortly after, the foundation informed me that Balázs's; wish was on its way.
When I went to see Balázs today, he had no idea that his wish would be fulfilled soon. He was stunned. It's hard to put his happiness and joy into words!
He said: "Thank you so much! I'm so glad! My wish became true so soon!"
Máté has spent several months in the hospital multiple times. He was either a private student or could sometimes be able to join classes with his classmates.
When he can, he loves cycling and rollerblading with his friends.
He asked Magic Lamp for a gamer monitor and a super gamer headset.
At the hospital, we fulfilled Máté’s wish, making him extremely happy. Luckily, they could leave the hospital the next day to try the Fortnite and the car simulator games, which he was so excited about.
We wish Máté a speedy recovery!
Maté's mum has sent us the following letter:
On behalf of my son Máté, we are grateful for the generous donation! He is so pleased with the gamer set.
Máté is a very strong and cheerful boy who has recently turned 14.
Today we were sent home from the hospital, and the first thing we had to do was set up the monitor. The earphones make the experience even more exciting for him.
We are very grateful and thank you very much again.
Máté is a little tired from his illness, but his happiness is helping him through his journey.
We wish you all the best!
Máté and his motherˇ"
The previously active athlete underwent major surgery. He got a lot of additional hospital treatment since last summer. He still can't socialize, and he misses his sports friends very much. Before his illness, he was already interested in making a video. He wanted a more serious computer for it. But life brought something else.
With the help of a generous donor, his wish of getting a computer is now fulfilled. He is happily learning how to work the computer, developing the lost knowledge and skills.
Dear Áron, we wish you a full recovery!

Dominic will have a major operation, after which he will not be able to go to school for a longtime. From Magic Lamp, he wanted a laptop to continue his studies remotely and keep in touch with his classmates and friends until they could meet again. Of course, he will watch his favorite movies on it and download a game or two to it in his free time.
It is special for us that we could surprise Dominic with this laptop before Christmas.
