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!

Okotoks Wishmaker Walk for Wishes

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

On September 19th, Exile Island proved itself to be fit for only the most rugged, courageous and resilient pirate crews of Calgary. Thirteen teams joined together as they dug for treasure, walked the plank, and battled the high seas with their hand-built pirate ships.

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!
