The Children’s Wish Foundation is the official charity of Miss Teenage Canada. They are dedicated to granting heartfelt wishes to children with a life-threatening illness.
A wish is very important to a child because it can make the pain and discomfort of the illness more bearable and planning a dream is very exciting and often times, it has a dramatic effect on their healing. A Wish that comes true is a sign of hope.
Last year, they granted over 1,000 wishes!
All the delegates are tasked with raising a minimum of $400 to help grant wishes. I decided to host a yard/bake sale over two weekends and I also sold tickets on a baby quilt. I collected donations from family and friends and had two huge yard sales and a bake sale.
After my second yard sale, all the clothes that did not go went in the clothing donation bin in support of Children’s Wish.
I also attended a princess tea party for Children’s Wish in Fredericton. I loved handing out bags and greeting all the little princesses as they entered the hall. Their reactions to the Disney princesses was my favourite part!
