Help Make a Wish and Gravol

It seems like more and more children are being diagnosed with serious illnesses and it breaks my heart.  I believe every child should have an opportunity to enjoy  life to the fullest and to laugh and share memories with their loved ones and to just be a kid.  

Since 1984,The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada has granted over 17,000 wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses. Children’s Wish is proud of its tradition of never refusing a wish to an eligible child.

The Children’s Wish Foundation has never refused a wish to an eligible child since it was established in 1984 and has granted over 18,000 wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.  

This year (2012), has been the most demanding year that the organization has seen in terms of granting wishes for children.  
“We do not have a waiting list however, there are over 1,700 wishes that remain pending or are in process,” says Paul St. Germain, Communications Director for Children’s Wish Foundation.  ”Requests have gone up 24 per cent since 2009 and in recent months we have received more wish referrals than ever before.  These factors place a greater strain on our resources and underline the significant importance of the support we receive from partners like the makers of Gravol® as well as the greater need for donations from the general public.”
For the month of December the makers of Gravol® will be donating $1 for every purchase of Gravol® to the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada

Every little bit helps!
