JOHN CENA GRANTED MORE THAN 600 MAKE A WISH REQUESTS, THE MOST OF ANY CELEBRITY IN HISTORY – (11/07/2019)
In addition to ‘wrestler’ and ‘actor’, we can add ‘philanthropist’ to John Cena’s resume. With over 600 wishes granted, Cena has granted more wishes than any celebrity in history. In a recent interview with People magazine, Cena recalled the first day he met one wisher—a young fan of WWE. “I said ‘If you ever need me for this ever, I don’t care what I’m doing, I will drop what I’m doing and be involved because I think that’s the coolest thing.” Cena also gets the most requests at Make a Wish; other stars don’t usually pass 300.
But Make a Wish isn’t the only charity that Cena supports: he recently donated $500,000 to the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation and the California Fire Foundation—both chosen by Paramount Pictures, the studio behind Cena’s upcoming film Playing with Fire.
