San Francisco Batkid's little cape has created a huge wave of good feelings and donations for the Make-a-Wish foundation, the group that organized his day of heroism.
 
"I think when individuals learn about what Make-a-Wish does and the impact it has on a child, they can't help but want to become involved in some way," the organization's national communications manager Josh deBerge told ABCNews.com today.
 
"First and foremost and above all is that the wish went so well," he said. "From the execution to the interest, it was just wonderful and I think Miles had, by all accounts, a great time."
 
The Make-a-Wish Foundation created an entire day catered to Miles Scott's dream, and an estimated 13,000 people turned out to cheer him on along the way. President Obama even issued his first ever Vine on Twitter congratulating Miles.
