According to the website the mission of Make a Wish Canada this year is to grant the most wishes of children that live with life threatening illness in hopes of enhancing the experience as much as possible with hope, strength and joy.  Different volunteering opportunities is available if interested in helping this foundation. One of the easiest ways is to donate to Make-a-Wish Canada to help transform lives of different children. If you are interesting in volunteering and giving you time, different opportunities are available. New volunteers start by participating in fundraiser, helping getting things ready and helping at the fundraiser and as you give more time and the trust is build the organization will ask you to announce the goods news to the children.

A bit of history: 

Nigel Brown and Robb Lucy established the Canadian Make-a-Wish chapter in 1983. After working with the charity in the United States, Nigel and Robb started a small committee in Canada to help children with life threatening conditions grant their wishes.  

 

Comments

The Make A Wish Foundation is a very popular non-profit organization. I remember working at a grocery store in Florida as a teenager, asking for donations at the registers. The outcome was pretty positive as most customers accepted the offer and usually donated more than we were asking for. It’s encouraging to know that people are willing to help out, especially when the funds are used to helping children. I wish you had shared a little more about the organization and some of the acceptable donations or ways to volunteer in your post. A lot of people don’t know you can refer children to them or donate things like flyer miles.
