This year for our Miracle Day donation, our team has decided to make a donation to Merrymount Family Support & Crisis Centre and to Make-A-Wish Canada.
Merrymount is a wonderful accredited children’s mental health center that delivers strength-based programs and services to support the overall wellbeing of children and families. For 149 years, Merrymount has supported the London area, and serves more than 2,500 children and 8,000 families annually. With around-the-clock programs to support children who are experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, mental health and wellbeing challenges, Merrymount is something we feel honoured to have donated too.
Make-A-Wish Canada has been granting the heartfelt wishes of children with critical illness for 40 years. Their first wish was granted in 1983, and to date, Make-A-Wish Canada has granted over 37,000 wishes across the country. Due to the pandemic, many wishes were put on hold and Make-A-Wish is now working hard to grant wishes to thousands of kids who are waiting. Every 20 minutes, a child is diagnosed with a critical illness. We are so proud to be supporting such a wonderful foundation!
