Make-A-Wish® Canada is proud to partner with Paris Jewellers to help grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses across the country. From November 5th to December 24th, Paris Jewellers will be donating a portion of all sales from items featured in their 2021 Holiday Collection and Gift Guide: celebrate the holidays with the perfect gift all while supporting Make-A-Wish®.
Supporting our mission is very important to owners Chau and Trang. To date, Paris Jewellers has raised more than $65,000 for Make-A-Wish Canada. Chau’s eldest daughter, Layla, was born premature at a mere three and a half pounds. Chau spent a month in the hospital with Layla when she was born, and saw firsthand the importance of hope while navigating difficult times. That is why the mission of Make-A-Wish is so close to their hearts. “We cannot imagine the hardships these parents go through. It is our desire that by supporting Make-A-Wish we can help bring some much-needed joy to these families” says Chau and Trang.
The holidays are a time like no other, as they help remind us of the magic that comes with being a child. This year especially, many of us will feel a sense of hope and joy we haven’t known for a very long time as we can safely reconnect with family and friends to celebrate traditions together. For children with critical illnesses, a life of uncertainty remains. Hospital stays, doctor’s visits and painful treatments are their “normal”, even during the holiday season.
“National partners like Paris Jewellers play a crucial role in our efforts to deliver on our mission and reach our vision of granting the wish of every eligible child in Canada” says Cathy Gabbucci, Vice President, Development – Western Canada. She continued, “Paris Jewellers’ ongoing investment and strong belief in the life-changing work will help us continue to transform lives. We are grateful for their ongoing generosity and leadership.”
