Marvel Studios has donated $1.25 million to help children impacted by serious illness.

The funding from Marvel Studios: Hero Acts will support the Make-A-Wish and Starlight Children’s Foundations, the studio announced on Thursday (May 10) in honor of its 10th anniversary.

Make-A-Wish will receive $800,000 to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses around the world, and $450,000 will go to Starlight Children’s Foundation to help bring joy and comfort to children in hospitals.

Starlight will use the grant to produce more than 26,000 Starlight Gowns – the charity’s revolutionary new colorful and comfortable children’s hospital gowns – featuring artwork inspired by the suits of eight favorite Marvel Super Heroes. Check them out in our gallery below!
