Our mission is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
HOW TO REFER A CHILD
• Referrals are accepted from medical professionals*, parents or guardians, or a potential child directly.
• Referrals from any other sources should be directed to ask the family to contact the Foundation.
• The family will always be contacted once the referral is made before taking the wish to the next step
*Medical professionals could include a doctor, nurse, social worker or child-life specialist with detailed knowledge of the child’s current medical condition.
• The child is between the ages of 3 and 17
• The child has a life-threatening medical condition that is currently in the life-threatening stage
• The child has not received a prior wish from any wish-granting organization
• The child’s treating physician and our Medical Advisor deem the child medically able to participate in the wish
Referrals can be made by completing this downloadable Refer a Child application form and returning by fax, mail or email. You can also click the 'Refer a Child' button (above) to complete an online form.
HOW TO VOLUNTEER WITH US
Volunteers give the most valuable gift of all – the gif of time. Their hard work, passion and commitment to helping make magical wishes come true is at the heart and soul of our foundation. As a volunteer, you’ll not only help leave a positive impact on the lives of deserving children, but you'll also change your own. We always welcome new volunteers who have the same passion and commitment for seeing kids’ wishes fulfilled as we do. If you’re interested in volunteering with Make-A-Wish® Saskatchewan, contact Allyson Toye to learn more about the opportunities in your area.
The Make-A-Wish® 2nd annual Shaker Full of Wishes event will be held on Thursday March 1st at the elegant Delta Bessbourgh in Saskatoon, where the Battleford Ballroom will be transformed into a dazzling fire and ice theme. As you enter, you may wonder if you have entered a fairy-tale, as fairy lights twinkle and “snowflakes” swirl around you, creating a fantasy as splendid and spectacular as the wishes Make-A-Wish grants. Join us in an evening of wish stories, hors d’oeuvre, vodka and gin taste testing from local distillers, ice luges, fire and ice dancers, as well as silent and live auctions while enjoying hand crafted Wish martinis.
Shaker Full of Wishes is an opportunity to connect the community to our powerful mission of bringing hope, strength and joy to the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions. Funds raised throughout the evening will help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening conditions in Saskatchewan.
Tickets are $60.00 per person.
