Cappuccino the bunny has a friend on Instagram named Thumper. Thumper is an adorable plush bunny who owns a human named Katie Vandrilla. Katie received a cancer diagnosis and Thumper helped her get through it. So did the Make A Wish organization which granted her wish to meet Johnny Depp. Katie subsequently wrote a children’s book called Thumper’s Hospital Adventure. She donates the proceeds to the Make a Wish Foundation to help other young people experience what she did when her wish was granted.

I’m heartbroken over what the #coronavirus is doing to the world. Our #MakeAWish had to cancel their biggest event, and kids are waiting longer for their Wish until the world is safer. I’m trying to help the only ways I know how. Until the end of April, I’ll match the royalties from “Thumper’s Hospital Adventure” that are donated to Make-A-Wish to help children get their Wish. I’ll also give an extra $1 for each KindleUnlimited read.
