Make-a-Wish for Joshua Garrison Carida® works with a number of different charity organizations and Make-a-Wish is one of them. On April 28, 2007, members of Garrison Carida made the dreams of a sick little boy named Joshua come true. Garrison Carida presented Joshua with a stormtrooper helmet (complete with the signatures of the members in attendance), a Darth Vader lightsaber from LucasFilm and an autographed poster from Hayden Christansen himself. The imperials made their entrance and Darth Vader and Boba Fett marched up the center to greet Joshua. Joshua was all smiles the instant he laid eyes on the first trooper.
There wasn’t a dry eye in the room (or under the helmets) as everyone watched Joshua light up the lightsaber and put on the stormtrooper helmet. Joshua’s night was rounded out with a big group shot of him with all of the characters from Star Wars. The troopers of Garrison Carida are dedicated to making children happy and are strong supporters of charity.
