Established in 1984, Children’s Wish is a national non-profit organization dedicated to fulfilling a favourite wish for children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses.
Since its inception, Children’s Wish has granted more than 20,000 wishes for children and their families and fulfills approximately 1000 wishes annually — granting nearly three wishes everyday — each being an individual adventure, carefully structured to meet the needs of that particular child. The foundation has never refused a wish to an eligible child.
Here are some quick facts that might help:
Arctic Spas has now participated in over $120,000 in Wishes from Halifax to Alberta.
-we have provided both hot tubs and swim spas for Children who not only want these in their lives, but many require them for therapeutic benefit.
-having a therapeutic pool at home saves time, costs and stress on the wish family.
-our spas and swim spas provide an environment that the Wish family can relax together, de-stress and enjoy (in some cases) movement unrestricted by wheelchairs, etc.
-we not only provide the spas but deliver and set up at no charge to the family, and in many cases have the electrical work done gratis by our partner contractors.
If people know of a child, or family that would benefit from a wish granted by the Children’s Wish organization, they simply need to get in touch with their local chapter. They will work diligently to ensure the wish is fulfilled.
In the New Year, we will participate corporately in a few fundraising initiatives for Children’s Wish to further involve all BFM staff in this very worthwhile program.
