Kensington Tours and Travel Edge are proud to return in 2019 as an official Destination Partner of Make-A-Wish®

Make-A-Wish creates life-changing wishes for children living with critical illnesses, giving them the armour they need to fight their disease. Wishes are an important part of a child’s treatment journey, providing hope when they need it most, and research shows they have effects on children’s overall well-being and health outcomes.

In fact, wishes have proven physical and emotional benefits that can give children with critical illnesses a higher chance of survival. When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope.

The impact of a wish is simply incredible:

  • 89% of those within the medical community believe that a wish come true can impact the mental, emotional and physical health of a sick child. 
  • 97% percent of wish alumni report improved mental and emotional health because of their wish experience
  • 79% say their wish experience marked a turning point in their treatment and recovery, and
  • 71% believe the wish experience contributed to saving their lives.

This is why we believe very strongly, that a wish is more than a nice-to-have, it’s a need-to- have. It works in collaboration with their medicine to make the child and their family grow stronger, together.

Thank you to Kensington Tours & Travel Edge for helping grant more wishes!
