Once again, our friends at the NAX Hockey Academy at Riverview Middle School in Devon held a Wishful Baking Week bake sale & raised over $800! We're so grateful for the support of these incredible kids, and to everyone who had a bake sale for Make-A-Wish!
If you didn't get a chance to plan your bake sale during Wishful Baking Week, don't worry—you can raise funds for Make-A-Wish by baking and selling yummy treats anytime! Let us know if you need ideas or support.

Kabrel lives with a metabolic disorder that affects his daily life— that means he thinks about his health more than most 12-year-olds would. Last September Kabrel's wish to be a race car driver came true, and marked our 1,000th wish! “It was something just for him and he loved it,” says Kabrel's mom.

During Canadian Airport Safety Week in September, Edmonton Airports held a fundraising drive in support of Make-A-Wish. The fundraising activities were supported by numerous companies and individuals that work at Edmonton International Airport, and included a fireman's relay race and BBQ!

Yesterday, Damien DeClercq, Security Coordinator (and wish dad!) and Sue Blackwood, Parking Coordinator, both of Edmonton Airports, came by to drop off all the funds they raised: over $8,000!

We are so grateful for our partners in the community—like all the folks at the Edmonton International Airport—who help make wishes come true every day. We cannot do this without you! Thank you!

You can also purchase a beautiful Pandora Bright Star Charm ($40) - all proceeds going towards granting future Wishes 💫  Having firsthand experience, I can confidently tell you that Wish = Magic.

"A year ago we started on an adventure that would truly change our lives. The memories we made and the friends we met are irreplaceable. The smile that was plastered on Bennett’s face for those 6 days will always be near and dear to my heart, especially after having such a heartbreaking year prior. I am so grateful that he, and we as a family, were able to have this experience. 'Thank you' truly doesn’t seem like enough for allowing us to have this special time together. I will forever be indebted to Make-A- Wish Northern Alberta for making my son and his siblings feel like they were the center of the world for a week and most importantly making Bennett smile again."

A quick flashback to last Saturday when Clara's wish for a playhouse came true thanks to the incredible work of many volunteers. Clara and her sister have a lot of playing to do: "They love it!" says their mom.
