Conwest Cares Make-A-Wish FundraiserFaites un don!
The Conwest team is a diverse group of creative individuals who thrive in a collaborative and ever-changing environment. We are capable, real people who live and work in the communities we develop. We love what we do and believe that our work impacts the community in a positive and responsible way.
Supporting Make-A-Wish® BC & Yukon is another great way to be part of our community! By supporting Make-A-Wish, we have a chance to help create incredible wishes, and we're happy to announce that we have funded a wish!
Meet Mae, a five-year-old who battled a brain tumour. She, along with her parents and siblings, have recently returned from Mae's trip to Walt Disney World in Florida, and thanks to the generosity of Conwest's people, the trip costs were all covered!
“We had an absolutely wonderful trip," said Mae's mom, Tessa. "We have been trying to ask the kids about their favourite part, and it is impossible for them to choose. For me, it was very special to watch Mae get her princess make over, since that was really why we were flown all the way to Florida. Mae loved the rides at Magic Kingdom, especially the tea cups and the Dumbo ride. We also met many characters which was definitely a highlight for Mae. We ended up meeting Belle three times!! Give Kids The World Vilage is an amazing place to stay. Mae loved the fairy ride, our boys loved the arcade, my husband loved the all day ice cream! I loved all the food I didn’t have to cook. Mae was at a perfect age for this trip because she still believed all the magic. I could keep going about all of the wonderful parts of our trip, but really the entire thing was amazing.”
Thank you to everyone who contributed to help bring this hope, strength and joy into Mae's life, and the lives of her family! We're well on our way to granting a second wish, with a goal of a third. We're so pleased to have been able to adopt Mae's wish.
At Make-A-Wish, they grant all sorts of wishes. Let Aubrey's wish for a circus for her hospital friends inspire us to keep moving forward in helping to grant more wishes:
Aubrey and Mae are just two of 2,100 kids aged 3-17 who are living with a critical illness, who have had their world transformed through a granted wish from Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon!
We have a real opportunity through our fundraising efforts to transform the life of a wish kid, as well as the lives of their family. It is our goal to raise enough money to grant three wishes: help us raise $30,000 to make this a reality!
