I am honored to represent one of the 100 diverse female leaders across Canada as an inclusive Ambassador in helping Make-A-Wish® Canada raise $1 Million dollars this year through the WOMAN FOR WISHES campaign!
I will work to unite with women across Canada to acknowledge and celebrate granting wishes, creating life-changing moments for children with critical illnesses.
Wishes are a powerful psychological intervention that bring to life the most heartfelt wish of a child facing a critical illness:
⭐️ 99% of parents reported that the wish experience gave their children increased feelings of happiness.
⭐️ 97% of adult former wish kids report improved mental and emotional health because of their wish experiences.
⭐️ 96% of parents said the wish experience strengthened their families.
⭐️ 92% of parents observed a reduction in fear and anxiety among wish kids’ siblings.
We aren't always aware of the possibilities our presence has in enriching the lives of others; especially for children who are in need of our support to live a fulfilling life with opportunities that we often take for granted. The Women for Wishes campaign drives the initiative that will make a life-changing impact for so many children in need.
