Join us on June 23, 2021Register Now! Donate To This Event
At Make-A-Wish ® BC & Yukon, we're Canada's oldest Make-A-Wish chapter. In our 36 year history, we've been able to make almost 2,200 wishes come true in that amount of time. That's a lot of wishes! And we want you to help us grant even more! Children with critical illnesses need your help, today.
You are invited to help us raise funds this summer with our Lemonade For Wishes campaign! Join in the fun by setting up an old fashioned lemonade stand anytime from now until August 31st. Let's all join together and raise $8,000 to grant a wish this summer!
Hosting a Lemonade Stand is as easy as 1, 2, 3:
1. REGISTER NOW & PICK A LOCATION: Your lemonade stand can be right on your front lawn, or at your workplace, your cabin or campground! Create the fundraising page for your lemonade stand here by selecting the “Register now” button at the top of this page. You’ll get your own personal fundraising page and we’ll send you individual packages of lemonade drink mix which you can use as part of your “stand”. Make sure to customize your fundraising page and make it your own!
2. SPREAD THE WORD: Begin promoting your personal fundraising page on social media and by email, asking people to “buy a glass” of your lemonade. Be creative! Decorate your porch like a lemonade stand and take a picture, create a video, make a banner or sign, and share it on social media. Get the world out that you’re “open” for business! Offer to sell a glass of lemonade or a whole pitcher! Add to the fun by having your donors post a photo of themselves enjoying their lemonade. Be sure to tag @makeawishbcyk and #LemonadeForWishes in all the posts and we’ll share them too. Here are some more ideas!
Decorate your booth with balloons and banners which we can mail to you directly.
Design your own lemonade cards and send them to donors, letting them know about your fundraiser.
If you’re comfortable, safely deliver your prepackaged lemonade and a bottle of water to your donors.
Hold a lemonade stand over video chat with your coworkers. Go live on Facebook or Instagram to show off your stand, or take photos making lemonade and tag your donors!
3. RAISE MONEY: Collect money from your supporters for Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon, and make wishes come true for kids living in your community. Donations can be made to your online page. We’ll make digital thank you cards and graphics available so you can thank your donors.
