Celebrities granting wishes

When busy celebrities take time to do nice things for others, it really warms my heart.  Yes, some do it for the publicity, but even then it can be nice because it helps someone else.  John Stamos has done several nice things like this.
Not long ago the former Full House star lifted the spirits of a 19-year-old quadruple amputee by visiting her at the hospital and promising to take her on a visit to Disneyland. He later sent out a message that he did it simply because she asked!

There is an organization called Project Cuddle which is dedicated to preventing baby abandonment, working with pregnant women in distress to provide shelter and to give them guidance. John Stamos is also the spokesperson for them.

Of course John isn't alone. NBC newscaster Brian Williams, San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Sergio Romo, and even youtube sensation Ryan Higa have all taken the time to brighten the lives of people who are ill or in need.
One of the San Francisco Giants' stars, Tim Lincecum, provided smiles to a young boy too.  His story his HERE.
I should point out that granting wishes or making people feel good, isn't always being done through an organization or agency.  Most of the cases I cited here are stars just responding to a need.  May they be an inspiration to us all!
