We need your support more than ever
Sunshine is the only charity in Canada that changes the lives of kids and youth living with severe physical disabilities through customized dream experiences.
The pandemic has created a growing mental health crisis across Canada, especially affecting the kids we serve. Big events (like a pandemic) that happen in adolescence tend to be most formative for values and priorities. But surviving can foster resilience and growth - when the emotional and material conditions are right (Anderssen, Globe & Mail, 2021). This is where a Sunshine Dream can make a life-changing difference. For many, a Sunshine Dream is a ray of hope and gives them a foundation to build a brighter future.
Hope and encouragement are the best antidotes in challenging times. Help raise awareness of the power of a Sunshine Dream and fundraise to support more dreams come true for kids near you.
This year, our goal is to raise $20,000 to help make more dreams possible! Your support today will help ensure dreams like receiving adaptive technology to connect with peers and online learning, or musical instruments to increase skills and confidence will come true next year for kids in your own community.
Gather your water toys, fundraise, and make a splash anytime in August to help change the lives of kids living with 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.
