I am helping to transform lives, one wish at a time!

The Dream Team is back to help grant a wish for a child with a critical illness!

As many of you know, for seven years (2014-2019, 2021), I was part of a small team of industry friends that raised enough money to grant a wish for a child with a critical illness. 

In each year our team's goal was to raise $10,000, and each year we more than exceeded that goal through the generous support of many of you. In fact, in 2017, 2019 and 2021 we raised over $20,000, and over our 7 years doing this, 10 different children (yes 10!) were granted their wish!

Over the past several years we have learned that granting a wish not only brings a smile to the children, but it also brings smiles to the whole family who enjoy a much-needed reprieve from doctors, hospitals, and invasive testing. When you help grant a wish you are helping much more than you can imagine

Our small team of industry friends – called the Dream Team – is back this year to help grant a wish for a child with a critical illness!

Our team is taking part in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze for Wishes event this summer (April 27 – June 25).

Make-A-Wish® Trailblaze for Wishes is an 8-week virtual event that brings together a community of passionate people to connect and raise funds to change the lives of children facing critical illness in Canada.

Make-A-Wish Canada’s goal is to bring every eligible child's wish to life. In 2021, they granted over 900 life changing wishes. Challenges related to COVID-19 persisted through last year, and there are still thousands of wishes waiting to be granted. We cannot grant those wishes without your help.

Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 which is (approximately) equal to one wish for one child. 

And, as part of a stretch goal, we are also going to try to raise $20,000, as we did in three of the last four years, so we can grant two children their wishes in 2022!

What can you do?

We've set an ambitious goal because with your support, we can get there. The money we raise will help bring every eligible child's wish to life, as a wish isn’t just a nice to have, it is essential.

No donation is too small. Every dollar will help us get closer to helping another child with a critical illness make their wish come true, like Noah's!


Thank you,

Noah, 9
nervous system disorder

I wish to have a French Bulldog

Noah was born with a nervous system disorder that damages the membrane that covers nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. It didn't take long for nine-year-old Noah to fall in love with Jellybean. Jellybean has brought a sparkle into Noah's eyes, and because of her, he is smiling and giggling every day.
