December 2018
We will have taken part in granting 116 wishes in 2018, and that is all thanks to you! We don't make wishes come true in the office: it is YOU—our supporters, ambassadors and donors that are the wish makers. Without your dedication and generosity, wishes cannot happen. Thank you!
This holiday season we are highlighting the wishes we granted this year while continuing to raise funds for the wishes we're working on in the New Year. There are several ways to get involved: bid on a great gift in our Fill Your Stockings online auction, or donate to the Community Door on our Calendar of Wishes .
All donations up to $5,000 will be matched by Landrex Developments , so your impact is doubled!
From everyone at Make-A-Wish Northern Alberta, we wish you a holiday filled with imagination, hope and life-changing experiences that uplift and inspire.
What if a wish could change everything?
When Hiro, 5, wished to visit Walt Disney World® Resort, he hoped to meet Mickey Mouse and go to Legoland. Living with a brain tumour, Hiro was isolated for almost a year during treatment, and hasn't spent a lot of time outside. For him this trip meant fun and adventure, but for Hiro's mom, Aimee, it was so much more than a vacation.

" This wish experience changed us in so many ways. For once, we didn't have to worry about Hiro. For once we got to leave behind the life we've been living for over a year and for once he got to be a kid again.

"The wish trip was such an amazing thing for our kids to go through, because as much as this was Hiro's journey, our other son also walked the road with him. And they got to have something that was just for them. We don't have the luxury of taking time for granted, and this trip just added to the moments we will remember always. We are grateful to everyone that does this everyday for thousands of kids."
