Tiffany's Breakfast at Tiffany's

Poonamdevi, 19, loves the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s so much that she calls herself Tiffany. She lives with a very serious heart condition which is what brought her to Make-A-Wish.

For her wish, Tiffany combined two things that she loves: jewelry and movies. Her wish was to have a shopping spree at the fabled store and to live out a scene from her favorite movie – to have breakfast at Tiffany’s!

The luxury store rolled out the red carpet to make her wish come true. Her very own “breakfast at Tiffany’s” happened at the gorgeous and exclusive Blue Box Café. Then it was on to the Tiffany Salon, a private, by-appointment-only show room, where their best jewels are showcased.

The wish was planned to coincide with Tiffany’s 19th birthday and the team at Tiffany & Co. made it a day to remember. She was surprised with a cake shaped like an iconic blue Tiffany box and a gorgeous key necklace as a gift from the store. Then it was time to shop. While there was a definite limit to her wish budget, she was able purchase some special keepsakes.

For kids living with a critical illness, like Tiffany, a wish can be a life-changing experience. When a child’s wish is granted, the seemingly impossible becomes possible. And if the impossible can happen once, kids can believe in their ability to live with or even overcome their illnesses. That’s the true power of a wish.
