Season of Wishes: Make-A-Wish Brings Nicest Child On The Planet To The Grove

The Make-A-Wish Foundation, the organization that makes sick kids each and every dream come true granted the wish of a child who wants to give other kids a bunch of toys.

After prolonged hospital stays (due to a rare condition that causes tumors to grow throughout her body) 12-year-old Madison Smith said her wish was to provide toys for all the kids at Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA this Christmas.

Madison saw her wish come true at The Grove’s Christmas tree lighting spectacular last night, when a band of Santa’s elves delivered a bag full of toys headed for the hospital. Also on stage were The Cheetah Girls, Goo Goo Dolls, Mannheim Steamroller, Sean Kingston and Emmy Rossum.

Little Madison is pictured here with Lauren Conrad, who, we’re guessing, is rethinking her Christmas wish list now.
