  • Kensington Tours & Travel Edge Join Make-A-Wish As Official Destination Partners

2018-03

Luxury travel providers, Kensington Tours and Travel Edge, have partnered with Make-A-Wish® as official Destination Partners for 2018, helping to send wish children to travel destinations around the world.

 

“We are in the business of changing lives through travel,” says Kensington Tours President Alison Hickey and Travel Edge Executive Vice President Cheryl Nicholson. “We know how travelling to new places can lift one’s spirit, bring families together and transform lives. For a family with a child who has experienced a very challenging medical journey, becoming a destination partner with Make-A-Wish seems like a small gesture and a natural extension of our giving efforts. Our team of employees has rallied behind Make-A-Wish with determination and passion to ensure that the travel wishes of these children are granted. We are proud to know we are doing our part to help these families mark the beginning of a new healing path, and hopefully, an experience that will change their lives.”

 

Make-A-Wish is thrilled to partner with the Kensington Tours and Travel Edge team. “This partnership is a great fit,” says Sheila Rees, regional director, Make-A-Wish Toronto & Central Ontario. “Make-A-Wish is all about creating tailored experiences for children and their families. Kensington Tours and Travel Edge create personalized luxury travel for their clients. Together, we can create one-of-a-kind experiences for our wish children, bringing them joy at a time when it’s needed most.”

 

One such wish that will come true this year is that of five-year-old Lawrence, who lives with cancer.

 

Lawrence enjoys NASCAR, buttery pasta and playing outside in the snow, but above all else, he loves all things LEGO®. Thanks to Kensington Tours and Travel Edge, his wish to visit LEGOLAND® will come true.

 

He’s most excited about staying in a LEGO hotel, eating in special restaurants, building with LEGO bricks, and of course, meeting his favourite LEGO characters.

 

A wish-come-true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, and better able to battle their critical illness. For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses.

 

With the gift of wishes, Kensington Tours and Travel Edge will help renew a child’s strength and optimism, bringing happiness and healing to them and their families.
