WISH KIDS ACROSS CANADA

We want to bring every eligible child’s wish to life, but right now thousands of wishes are waiting due to COVID-19. For the wish children and families we serve, finding hope in challenging circumstances is something they have been doing long before any of us heard the word “lockdown”. Robbed of the simple joys of childhood, sadly hospital stays, and doctors’ visits and painful treatments are their “normal”.

At this incredibly challenging time, help replace fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope.

We need your help to make sure that when life returns to normal, no child must wait for their already delayed wish. There is no time to waste for these children and their families – they are counting on all of us.

Don’t wait for hope…create it!
