The Big Dog may be a heel inside the squared circle, but he’s a softie when it comes to community service. Roman Reigns has been awarded the Make-A-Wish Chris Greicius Award for Celebrity Wish Granting. Other big names being honored include JoJo Siwa, Patrick Mahomes, Shawn Mendes, and more.
The organization, which grants wishes to severely ill children, says that Reigns has been incredibly generous in his work with Make-A-Wish. He’s participated in promotional campaigns for the charity. These, the statement released by the organization says, helped greatly with fundraising efforts.
“Make-A-Wish America has awarded Roman Reigns, JoJo Siwa, Night, Patrick Mahomes, Seán McLoughlin, Shawn Mendes, the Texas Rangers and T.J. Oshie with the Chris Greicius Celebrity Award for playing a pivotal role in furthering the Make-A-Wish mission. These individuals and organizations provided their time, talent, and significant influence to grant wishes and drive fundraising results for the world’s largest wish granting organization, allowing more children to experience wishes that can help them deal with and overcome their critical illness…
WWE Superstar Roman Reigns has inspired many wish kids with his confidence and courage both in and out of the ring, especially given the health challenges that he has had to overcome. As tough as his in-ring persona can be, he’s nothing but kind and caring when he spends time with wish kids. Roman has also been incredibly generous with his willingness to participate in promotional videos and campaigns that help raise money to grant more wishes.”
Shaina Reeser, director of entertainment and sports relations for Make-A-Wish, said the contributions of these celebs’ help give kids emotional strength when they need it most. Kudos to Roman Reigns for the well-deserved recognition. For more info on how to help Make-A-Wish with their mission, visit wish.org.
