”Growing up, we all had wishes. A wish to be a superhero; to go to a tropical destination; to meet a favorite athlete; to have a car. For children with life-threatening medical conditions – these wishes mean so much more.” says Ross Hetherington, Chief Executive Officer, Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon. “It takes a village to grant a wish and during the Twelve Hours of Christmas – we are hopeful our community will show their support in helping to make more wishes come true.”
“This is the time of year when we can count our blessings and share some of our good fortune with others in our community, and we could think of no one more worthy of our support than Make A Wish,” says Sherri Pierce, General Manager of Shore 104. “To be able to grant some very special wishes for some very special children feels like it embraces the true spirit of Christmas.”

”The Make-A-Wish Foundation has inspired hope for children, and families, and has served as a role-model for the community,” says Philip Barnes, General Manager Fairmont Pacific Rim & Regional Vice President, Pacific Northwest.”Fairmont Pacific Rim in partnership with Shore 104 feels very privileged to be able to contribute in a meaningful way, to their extraordinary work. Our staff have had the opportunity to work with the organization, and the children directly, and I know each has been touched and humbled by the experience.”

Did you know that the average cost to grant a wish in North America is $6,000 CAD? As of this writing, Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon has granted over 95 wishes with another 95 waiting in the wings. Funds raised during the Twelve Hours of Christmas will share the power of a wish through 2014.
