About Children’s Wish Partnership with Recycling Rewards
Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is the largest and only all-Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting wishes to Canadian children between the ages of 3 and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. For more than 30 years, Children’s Wish has worked tirelessly to grant heartfelt wishes to nearly 25,000 children and their families – that’s three wishes each and every day, all year long!
Children’s Wish has chapter offices and professional staff in every province, and each wish family is assigned a dedicated Wish Coordinator who is able to personally and carefully structure each heartfelt wish experience to meet the particular needs of the child and their family. Travel wishes include all siblings 21 years and under living in the same household, and families travel worry-free thanks to exclusive Blue Cross insurance.
Our newly expanded reach, which includes children diagnosed with a serious neurological or genetic illness, means continued strong wish referral support through our medical community. Wish referrals continue to increase year over year, and we are proud to maintain our 'no waiting list' policy, thanks to our generous donors like Recycling Rewards.
Recycling Rewards is a proud Partner of the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, and since its inception in 2005, this long-time partnership has contributed over $1.8 million. A Wish has a measurable and meaningful impact on the lives of children and their families; the joy of a wish often provides a welcome respite for the child and their family, a break from medical appointments and their usual treatment routines. A wish can have a powerful and transformative effect on a child coping with a life threatening illness. At an average cost of $10,000 per wish, Recycling Rewards has helped grant over 180 wishes to children with life threatening illnesses together with Children’s Wish.
