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 that vulnerable kids and their families are facing right now while living with severe physical disabilities. Even in the absence of a global pandemic, Dr. Marc Fadel, Adolescent Psychiatrist, shares that “children who spend their lives in treatment are vulnerable to isolation, and serious mental health complications like chronic depression and anxiety frequently arise “- and this pandemic only makes it worse. For many of these kids, a Sunshine Dream experience is the only hopeful thing they have and plays an essential role in their health management. They need you more than ever.
Join us for #SplashForKids to help us reach our event goal of $35,000. Together, we can fulfill more dreams and prepare for 100 more life-changing experiences in 2021. Your support today will help ensure gift dreams like adapted sports and play equipment, bedroom makeovers, and personal technology will come true next year for kids in your own community.
Gather your team, fundraise, and take part in the fun challenges on June 20th, 2020 to help change the lives of families affected by severe physical disabilities.
About The Sunshine Foundation of Canada
The Sunshine Foundation of Canada is a charity 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.
Supporting kids and their families in communities across Canada, The Sunshine Foundation of Canada has celebrated 64 Sunshine DreamLifts and over 8,500 young lives transformed since our inception more than 30 years ago. These dreams have helped kids break barriers and write brighter future stories for themselves, showing them that nothing can stand in the way of their dreams.
