I'm going over the side of a building to help kids living with critical illnesses. And I need your help in two very important ways:
In the Rope for Hope, I will rappel from great heights to help grant the wishes of children living with critical illnesses. Now, me going over the side of a building should be no child's wish... that's where your donations come in.
But, in the spirit of heroism and fun, let's get me dressed up for this little adventure. My goal is to raise at least $1,500. If it helps bring in the donations, let's dress me up*. Some early ideas on what that might look like:
At $500: jeans and a t-shirt
At $1000: a suit and tie
At $1,500: I'm Batman
At $2,000: I’m Flash
At $5,000: I’m Superman
At $7,000: I'm Wonder Woman (which would make me the coolest dad, so there)
Any other suggestions? What can I do... to get money... from you?
And now, a bit about the cause: Rope for Hope is an annual fundraiser for the Make a Wish Foundation. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illness. For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses. I love that Strategic Group has been a sponsor of the Foundation for many years now.
Your support will allow the Foundation to continue to create powerful wish experiences, improving a child’s state of mind, replacing fear with happiness, and helping them to feel like a normal kid again. To learn more about Make-A-Wish® please visit www.makeawish.ca.
Every donation counts. Your commitment will help move Make-A-Wish closer to their vision of granting the wish of every eligible child in communities across Canada.
Please donate and support me in Make-A-Wish Rope for Hope!
*There are still rules: "If you are dressing up, please run your outfit of choice by Make-A-Wish organizers before event day to ensure it complies with safety regulations."
