What Canadians are Wishing for this Holiday Season: Share Your Wish for a Chance to Win

Wishing Wall
December, 2023

As the holiday season approaches, Canadians are eagerly making their wish lists and dreaming of the perfect gifts. To celebrate this festive time of year, Make-A-Wish® Canada is excited to announce the launch of our new Holiday Wishing Wall, where Canadians can share their wishes and have a chance to win a $1,000 VISA gift card to help make those dreams come true.

Until January 31st, Canadians from coast to coast can visit makeawish.ca/wishingwall and post their heartfelt wishes. Whether it’s a dream vacation, seeing their loved ones, a shopping spree, or expressions of hope and wellness, we want to know what Canadians are wishing for over the holidays and their dreams for the New Year.

“Just like wishes, we believe that the holiday season is about spreading joy and making dreams come true,” said Meaghan Stovel McKnight, CEO, Make-A-Wish Canada. “By creating the Holiday Wishing Wall, we aim to bring Canadians together and give them a platform to share their wishes with others. And what better way to make the season even more magical than by giving one lucky participant the chance to win a gift card to help make their wish come true!”

The Holiday Wishing Wall is open to all Canadians 18 and over, and participation is easy. Simply visit makeawish.ca/wishingwall and submit your wish. No purchase necessary. The lucky winner will be randomly selected and announced on February 5, 2024.

Make-A-Wish® creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child’s wish to life because a wish is an integral part of a child’s treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. As an independently operating affiliate of Make-A-Wish International, Make-A-Wish Canada is part of the network of the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization. We serve children in every community in Canada, and in more than 50 countries worldwide. In 2023, Make-A-Wish Canada is proudly celebrating 40 years of wish granting, having granted more than 38,000 wishes since 1983, with over 1,400 of them last year alone.
