LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FOX 11) - A little less than 11 months ago, MMA fighter and trainer Marcus Kowal and Mishel Eder's lives changed in one terrible moment with an accident that took the life of their 15-month-old son Liam. A 72-year-old woman suspected of driving drunk crashed into Liam's stroller. Mishel's 15-year-old sister, who had taken him for a walk, recovered but Liam's injuries were catastrophic.
Soon after, they joined us on Good Day LA with the decision to create something positive from such a tragic accident. Thus Liam's Life Foundation began, which is dedicated to changing the culture surrounding drunk driving and to promote organ donation. On Tuesday, they returned to our studio with their beautiful newborn baby, Nico."The name Liam means the people's protector. So we decided to name him Nico because Nico means the people's victory," Kowal said.
You can also enter to win two tickets to the Emmy Awards. Donation entries began at $10 at Hollywoodwish.comand support Liam's Life Foundation.

Starting with a $10 donation, consumers can enter to win a uniquely designed HOLLYWOOD WISH which may include but is not limited to round-trip airfare to Los Angeles, hotel accommodations, a private city tour provided by Glitterati Tours and an exclusive experience that could include a visit to a television show or film set, an invite to a private Hollywood event, a meeting with a celebrity or any of these opportunities in one wish.
Inspired by his own experience as a television producer and extensive research in other companies with similar charitable offerings, Founder Jeff Kueppers partnered with Rallyup.com, a leading fundraising platform to orchestrate and maintain the online sweepstakes campaigns. “Anyone entering can win the HOLLYWOOD WISH campaign, but when feasible I want to honor someone from our charity partner with either a shared or matching experience”, says Kueppers “For instance, the winner could go behind the scenes on a TV show but they may be joined by a deserving person nominated from the charity. This way they meet someone directly benefiting from their donation.”
The premiere campaign includes a tour of the famous Warner Brothers Studios followed by a VIP taping and a behind the scenes visit of the hit sitcom Mom, starring Anna Faris and Allison Janney. The contributions will benefit POPS the Club, which helps high school students affected by the incarceration of a loved one. “We’re so excited and grateful to have this amazing donation from Mom that benefits such an awesome organization,” states Kueppers. “POPS work in high schools is so important and impactful, that they’ve been invited to the White House twice in only a few years of existence.”
The mission of Hollywood Wish is twofold. We raise money for nonprofits by giving fans a chance to win an unforgettable Hollywood experience while including a person benefiting from the charity to have the same opportunity to participate. HollywoodWish.com
Rallyup.com began with a single vision: to make fundraising easier for organizations of every kind. We’ve designed the most flexible fundraising platform in existence. Now anyone can raise funds more easily for the organizations and causes they care about. Rallyup.com
