Regina Daniella (16 years old, Bugyi)

Regina is a 16 year old girl, who lives with her mother and sister in Bugyi. She goes to school in Budapest and if her illness lets her, she travels lots of hours on public transport to go to her classes.

She also spends a lot of time in the hospital because she is going to have a serious surgery soon.
Her grandmother is usually with her in the hospital, but she misses the rest of her family and her friends.

Her wish was an iPhone smartphone to help her to connect more easily with family and friends.
We were happy to fulfill her wish with the two helpful employees of Cisco, Viktória Beszédes and Katalin Komjáti.

We would like to thank the the Cisco Systems Hungary Ltd.’s running team, participating on the K&H mozdulj! marathon and half marathon competition, who as "Magic bugs" - sportsmen supporting the mission of Csodalámpa - organised a donation campaign which helped us to fulfill Regina’s dream.

Anett (17 years old, Szigetszentmiklós)




Anett was dreaming big when she asked Csodalámpa to help her to get to Wimbledon, where she could see the Swiss tennis player, Roger Féderer’s play in real life.
We turned to Mr. Attila Richter for help because he is the Hungarian Tennis Association's secretary general. He said yes to our request immediately and with a lot of work he was able provide us tickets to very good seats for Anett, Anett’s brother and for our volunteers.

Our two volunteers Laura Kékkúti and Peter Takács who live in London helped Anett and her brother to find the way in the big city.

We would like to thank for the support of the Hungarian National Bank, that of the Hungarian Tennis Association and the help of the students of the CEU Business School for their kind help.




Anett wrote us a kind letter:


When I used to watch tennis matches I wouldn’t think that I am ever going to see such an important match in real life. But with Csodalámpa’s help I had the opportunity to take part in the Wimbledon’s first two days.
We flew to London on the 26th of June with my brother. When we landed, Peti and Laura, our escorts welcommed us.
Next morning we went to Wimbledon. There were a lot of people and everybody was excited about the match. It was a wonderful experience to see the many fields and the tennis players who walked to their courts next to us.
We took our place at the Center Field where the first player was Djokovic, after him Muguruza and finally, Federer. It was an unbelievable feeling to see him and every aspect of the match in real life, not to mention his brilliant "first services".
It is hard to write down how fantastic and unforgettable was the whole mood of the match. The next day we could see Murray’s and Serena Williams’s play which was just the icing on the cake.
I am really thankful for those people who made it possible for me to get such a big and exceptional experience. Thank you for fulfilling my one dream that I had never thought could be made true.

Zsombor Alajos (12 year old, Barcs)

Is it a miracle when two children wish for the exact same thing?

When the „same thing” means that both of them want to go to Disneyland Paris’s? It is not.
This is how it happened, that these two children found themselves on the plane to Paris, which took off at 6:30 am…

Both kids had their mothers with them for the big journey. Lili and her mother came from Kecskemét so they had to wake up really early to get to the airport in time. This was more difficult for Zsombi and his mother because Barcs is even more far away than Kecskemét. But thanks to the Airport Hotel's support, they could spend the night in a really nice hotel.

After the two hour flight we had to get on to a bus, then we arrived to our beautiful hotel. We spent the rest of the day in the Disneyland Park.

The first impression? A fantastic wonderland where you can meet face to face Snow White or even Frozen’s princess... But of course all this in a "smaller edition" an holding their parent’s hands.

The children from the Csodalámpa got impressed by the Park immediately. They couldn’t even decide which game they would like to try next. We tried almost everything in the 3 days we had including the „safer” roller coasters or haunted houses and some more frightening games like a 360-degree turn making roller coaster which just avoids meteorites. All of the games were themed by Disney movies. Of course besides the fun roller coasters, we had other fantastic experiences too. We traveled through Disneyland with a real Wild West styled steam-engine, we saw Sleeping Beauty’s palace, we flew on Alladin’s magic carpet, met and took a photo with „living” cartoon characters and we shooted the enemies with Buzz Lightyear’s laser gun.

We planned for the second night to watch the Disneyland Park’s final show which started at 11pm. It was a fantastic light show with fireworks. Sleeping Beauty’s palace turned into a large screen where cartoons showed us the never ending fight between bad and good…

We spent our last day in the neighboring Walt Disney Studios’s. Stepping out from the Studio No 1, the statue of Walt Disney welcommed us, who created all this for us.
There were a lot of things to try here too. For example we parachuted with the Toy Story’s commandos, we tried to escape from Ratatouille’s cook in 3D and in the size of a rat. We could see here a really interesting stunt show which was exciting and special not only because of the tricks (with cars, motors, and a burning stuntman) but because they told us some secrets about the tricks. But we keep these secrets for ourselves.

And how did the children enjoy the trip? The photos reveal this more than anything...

Dear Csodalampa Foundation,

I would like thank the Foundation and its supporters this journey.
I had a wonderful three days, I tried every attraction I could during this time. I liked most the roller-coasters, and the very best among them the Rock 'n' Roller Coaster.
The other attractions were also funny, but I preferred the „extreme” ones.

This was my first flight on an airplane, I enjoyed every minute. The hotel we stayed in was splendid and the food there also.

You gave me and my mum a real experience of a lifetime, we felt ourselves like in a fairytale…

I am so grateful that you granted my wish!

Wishing you all the best form Barcs

Zsombor Alajos.
