December 12, 2023

Give the positive impact of heartfelt kindness, which will last well beyond the holiday season. We’re pleased to spotlight the Canadian programs below, showing a commitment to grant holiday wishes for the children and families in our community who will certainly appreciate it. —Julia Dumbrell

SickKids invites us to bring comfort, joy and distraction to its patients when they need it most. Whether it’s creating artwork, relaxing with music therapy or enjoying time with family, a SickKids Get Better Gift will direct donations to the area at SickKids that’s most meaningful to the giftee, helping make the hospital a brighter place. Donations can be made all the more personable with a free, accompanying card.

Make someone’s wishes come true – especially if they prefer salty to sweet snacks. Frito Lay Canada brings us the perfect bite through a limited run of their folded Miss Vickies ‘Wish’ Kettle Chips, available for the holiday season. Canadians who donate $5 or more to Make-A-Wish Canada can claim a bag, with Miss Vickie’s committed to tripling charitable donations up to $50k.

Anticipated annually, WestJet is giving back to those who sacrifice time with their own loved ones so we can be with ours. They brought a holiday miracle to Vancouver International Airport this year, connecting the unexpecting and hardworking staff of YVR with friends and family. To join in on the spirit of giving, WestJet invites us to give back by nominating a local holiday hero of our own.

With a special focus on gifting food and nutrition items for hungry children and families, the World Vision Canada offers a variety of gift ideas through its catalogue. Everytime an item is purchased from World Vision Canada in someone’s name, the gift multiplies 7 times in value to help even more families with food security.
