This past weekend, fan-favorite Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson shared quite a few videos via Instagram that had many tearing up over their screens.
Each year, he organizes an event in conjunction with the foundation, granting children the chance to get their one wish: to meet Dwayne in person.
Johnson took time to meet and chat with children who were battling critical illnesses, starting with a handshake.
In his posting, Johnson writes how much the meetup meant to him, calling events like the Make A Wish Foundation event the ‘best part’ of fame.
“Even though I was obviously there with the kids and parents, it’s hard for me to watch these without shedding a happy tear or two. As a man, father and luckiest SOB on this planet, I can honestly say without no uncertain terms — to me, this will always be the best part of my job. The best part of fame.”
Cue the tears…
In the video, the children can be seen adventuring on the set of Johnson’s latest movie, Jungle Cruise – with the set being decked out with tons of delicious looking treats and plenty of fun games for the kids.
Johnson sported his Jungle Cruise costume throughout the event, even bringing in Emily Blunt in on the fun.
Many of the kids are – not surprisingly – filled to the brim with laughter when taking photos, getting ‘The Rock’s’ signature and hugging the beaming actor.
At the very end of the event, Johnson surprises his fans with one last treat – a goodie bag filled with amazing gifts including one year’s supply of movie tickets, a Disney swag bag, Under Armor clothing and an exclusive Jungle Cruise X-Box One, complete with a year’s supply of games.
Johnson goes onto say why exactly the annual event is so close to his heart.
“This kind of thing where we’re delivering happiness to kids who need it and parents who need it is very special. The kids say that I inspire them, which is awesome, but the irony about it is they have no idea how much they inspire me.”
In a message to his young fans and their families, Johnson leaves them with this note at the end of his posting…
“Stay strong families and thank you for choosing me as your “wish” and thank you for the trust to deliver a little bit of joy to your lives.”
Okay at this point, if you are not crying – it is safe to say you are most definitely, a robot.
Take a watch for yourself below and keep the tissues handy.
You are going to need them.
