Boy With Leukemia Granted Make-A-Wish Shopping Spree

Every kid deserves a little bit of Christmas magic during the holiday season. But for 6-year-old Angel, the magic of a holiday wish went beyond anything he could have expected. Angel has been battling Leukemia, and all he wants for Christmas is to have toys for him and his siblings to play with.

Zappos and Make-A-Wish took this wish granting to the next level by inviting Angel to Target and giving him the opportunity to go on an epic shopping spree. With the help of his family and volunteers, he was given six minutes to grab anything and everything that his heart desired.

With Santa and Mrs. Claus at his side and tons of people cheering him on from the sidelines, Angel was able to score $22,000 worth of goodies. We were glad to see the smile and joy on his face knowing he was going to have a blast with his brothers and sisters.

We hope he invites us over for a game on the Xbox soon!
