We need your support more than ever
Raising funds for life-changing Sunshine Dreams is now more important than ever. In this isolating time we must recognize the challenge kids and their families are facing living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses. They are already at a higher risk than most for anxiety and depression and will be discouraged by the impact of this pandemic. For many, a Sunshine Dream experience is the only hopeful thing they have. And is a critical piece in their health management. This year, we have approximately 50 more dreams to fulfill and in 2021, there are 100 more dreamers approved for a life-changing experience towards a brighter, more hopeful future. We now need your help more than ever.
Support Sunshine dreamers in your community.
About The Sunshine Foundation of Canada
The Sunshine Foundation of Canada is a charity based in London, Ontario that transforms the lives of kids and their families living with physical disabilities through our dream programs. Unlike other wish-granting organizations, a Sunshine Dream experience is not a child’s last wish but an opportunity that helps kids build and express a positive sense of self leading to a brighter, more hopeful future.
Over 30 years later, we celebrate 64 Sunshine DreamLifts and over 8,700 young lives transformed by the tremendous impact of having a dream come true. These dreams have helped kids break barriers and write brighter future stories for themselves, showing them that nothing can stay in the way of their dreams.
