Pajama Day is about the behind the scenes reality of making heartfelt wishes come true. Wish children often spend a large amount of time battling their life-threatening illness in their pajamas at the hospital. What better way to show support for these inspiring children than by joining them in your jammies on March 19 and raising funds to help grant their wishes!

2015 WISH Gala

On Thursday, March 5th, 2015, 180 glamorous Vancouverites raised over $165,000 to support the work of The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, at the 2nd annual WISH Gala, presented by Pacific Blue Cross. Held at Vancouver’s historic Vogue Theatre, the event was sold out months in advance. Guests gathered for an incredible meal prepared on stage by Edible Canada, plus canapés from Fable, and a sweet finish by Farm 2 Fork. Wish Child Avery, who was diagnosed with a herart condition and underwent two open-heart surgeries when she was nearly three-years-old, was the Co-Host of the evening. Wish Child Emily has lived with Chron's Disease most of her life, and after her wish was fulfilled, she began volunteering with Children's Wish. You can view Emily's story here, produced by Vancouver's Noravera Visuals. Emily's video was premiered at the WISH Gala.

Wish-A-Thon

You can't put a price on joy, but the best things in life aren't free. During the Season Of Giving, there are many wishes waiting to be granted. Children's Wish honoured those wishes by celebrating with 12 Days of Wishes. We celebrated 12 wishes that were anxiously waiting to be granted from the support of our donours. As part of Wish-A-Thon, Air Transat and The Children's Wish Foundation celebrated their 10th anniversary partnership with the annual Flight in Search of Santa. Over 300 wish children and their families experienced a magical flight to the North Pole! Throughout the month of December, Wish-A-Thon raised close to $60,000! The Children's Wish Foundation would like to thank you for helping us reach our goal, and for granting the wishes of children with a life-threatening illness. Visit www.wishathon.ca to read all of our amazing wish stories and to find out how you can help grant a wish!

On October 4th, the community of Okotoks came together for another successful Wishmaker Walk! From bouncy castles, to live musical performances, the day was packed full of fun and entertainment for the whole family. The whole community rallied together to help raise funds for Children's Wish. Ten year old Rylee Ried shaved her head to help support wishes at the walk this year (raising over $2,100 herself!)

The Okotoks Wishmaker Walk raised over $50,000! Thank you to the committee for all of their hard work, and thank you to all of the supporters, volunteers, and families who worked hard to create another successful walk.

The Pirates of Exile Island

Thanks to the generosity and determination of the pirate crews, Exile Island Calgary raised a record breaking $335,000! Thank you to all of the participating teams, wish children, families and volunteers for the outstanding success!

Sam Sung auctions off last Apple business card

Sam Sung, a former Apple employee, generously auctioned off his last Apple business card, alongside an old uniform, to help grant wishes. Sam is a volunteer in the BC & Yukon Chapter of The Children’s Wish Foundation. He was introduced to Children’s Wish at the inaugural WISH gala in Vancouver, BC in March 2014. When the auction of his Apple items went live, it began generating a buzz on social media due to the irony of the items. After eliminating fake bids, the final bid was nearly $3,000 (CDN) and Sam was very pleased with the overall outcome. He continues to help support the magic of a wish!
