Gordon Ramsay was challenged to make 24 children's dreams come true in only 24 hours with the help of Make-A-Wish foundation and a few friends.
Ramsay, who is typically known for his tough love, took a break from his new show called Gordon Ramsay's 24 Hours to Hell and Back, where he travels the United States helping failing restaurants turn their businesses around, to help make children's wishes come true.
Ramsay gladly accepted the challenge and was able to surpass the goal by reaching thirty-two children in only one day. He spent the day calling and visiting children to let them know that Make-A-Wish was granting their wishes.
Some of the children's wishes were to meet Gordon. He personally visited a critically ill 14-year-old girl named Brandi, whos dream was to meet the chef and see him cook firsthand. Some of the other children's wishes were to meet other celebrities, so Gordon had to call in a few friends.
He recruited some a-list celebs to meet and spend time with a few of the other brave children. Katy Perry, James Corden, Duff Goldman, and Jay Leno joined in and helped Gordon reach his goal.
Some wishes were harder than others for Gordon Ramsay to grant. Timothy, who is 16-years-old and diagnosed with cancer, has always dreamed of building a computer from scratch. Ramsay didn't have any experience in building computers, so he told Timothy to meet him at a tech store. An employee at the store set him up with all of the different components to build his own computer.
“I cook for a living, right? Eggs, bacon, I’m fine. This stuff is in a different league,” Ramsay said to Timothy.
Other children got to decorate a cake with Duff Goldman, tour Jay Leno's garage, and one child even got a trip to Montana.
“What a day, an amazing day. Getting a chance to meet these incredible kids and seeing their strength and understanding their excitement is mind-blowing,” said Ramsay.
