David Otunga Helps Young Refugee, WWE & Make-A-Wish Updates
– TMZ reports that David Otunga met a young refugee from the Haiti earthquake at a WWE anti-bullying campaign event on Friday and after hearing the boy’s tragic story, he’s set up a meet-and-greet backstage at WrestleMania for him and all of the WWE Superstars. At the anti-bullying event, JFK Middle School raffled off a ticket to WrestleMania on Sunday.
The young refugee from Haiti won the ticket but Otunga was so moved by his story that he decided the one ticket wasn’t enough. The boy lives with foster parents in the US after being forced to move here two years ago. His mother died in Haiti a few weeks back.
– Almost 50 Make-A-Wish kids were treated to a private autograph signing with Sheamus, Big Show and WWE Divas Champion Beth Phoenix on Friday in Miami. Phoenix commented to WWE.com:
“It’s an opportunity to give back to these great kids dealing with big problems. This puts it all in perspective – what’s important in life. It’s an honor to be a part of Make-A-Wish.”
Tonight, John Cena will host the annual Make-A-Wish pizza party for the kids and their families at Jungle Island. WWE brought in Make-A-Wish kids from the United States, Canada and Ireland this year. All of the kids and their families will also be attending Sunday’s big pay-per-view.
