Give the Gift of a Wish by Donating Stocks & Securities

November 2017

In honour of her 70th birthday in 2015, Jan participated in our national signature fundraising event, Rope for Hope, in Toronto.

Jan has been a longtime volunteer and supporter of Make-A-Wish. In 2017, she gave a gift of stock to Make-A-Wish and she hopes her story will inspire others to donate to help grant life-changing wishes to more children with critical illnesses.


Why I Support Make-A-Wish

The lasting impact of giving

September 2017

Karen chose to donate to Make-A-Wish in honour of her former student, Nikolas, who had his wish granted when he was nine years old. In 2004, without warning, Nik suffered two strokes which severely impacted his health. When his family found out he was eligible for a wish, they were excited that Nik would have a special experience after a very difficult time. Nik wished to stay in a castle with a bowling alley and swimming pool (his two favourite activities). Make-A-Wish granted his wish in 2005 and gave him a family vacation at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel.
