This year, the Children’s Wish Foundation expects to grant 1,000 new wishes and is proud to have never refused a wish to an eligible child, and with the help of volunteers and generous donors, is able to grant nearly three wishes every day. Each wish is an individual adventure, carefully structured to meet the needs of a particular child and family. The Foundation is a grassroots charity with chapters in every province and territory.

Each year, thousands of Canadian children between the ages of three and 17 are diagnosed with a life threatening illness. The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is dedicated to granting an exceptional wish to every child. Children's Wish is a national charitable organization with chapters in every province. Since it was founded in 1984, it has granted wishes to more than 19,000 Canadian children. Each wish is as unique as the child who makes it. The magic of a wish provides children and their families with an opportunity to share the joy of a special experience, and an escape from the day-to-day challenges of illness. Children's Wish relies entirely on the generosity of its donors and volunteers to grant children their wishes.
We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Attitude Greetings and CharityCards.ca for their generous support. Over 13 years, $566,000 has been generated through their holiday greeting card program. Every time a holiday card is sold a portion of the proceeds goes towards making a child’s wish come true!
Thank you, for being part of the magic of a wish,
Chris Kotsopoulos, CEO
The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada
