Children's Wish Foundation of Canada - Newfoundland & Labrador Chapter

The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is the largest all Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting wishes to Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. For more than 30 years, Children’s Wish has worked tirelessly to grant heartfelt wishes to more than 23,000 children and their families. More than 700 of those wishes have been granted right here in Newfoundland and Labrador.

This year, the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada expects to grant over 1,000 new wishes across the country with the help of volunteers and generous donors; that is approximately three wishes each and every day, all year long. Each wish is the child’s most heartfelt wish, and carefully structured to meet the particular needs of the child and their family including children with serious genetic and neurological illnesses like severe cerebral palsy; a bold and historic decision in our recent wish granting experience.

Now more than ever, we are encouraging Canadians to donate and support The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada to help us continue to grant the next most heartfelt wish. Children’s Wish is a national charity with chapters in every province and territory. Visit www.childrenswish.ca for more information and to donate.
