Request for WISH Donation

Every year in Newfoundland and Labrador, children of life threatening sickness/disease hope to be granted their WISH from The Children’s Wish Foundation. In Newfoundland and Labrador, we have approximately 71 children on the WISH list. Back in 2018, the Children’s Wish Foundation decided to implement a WISH School Campaign. What that entails is that schools across the province can work towards becoming a designated WISH school. That means, their school has granted a child’s wish to someone throughout our province. We, at MacDonald Drive Junior High, have WISH children in our very own building! We have been working towards becoming a designated WISH school and granting our very own wish to one or even two of our very own students, as soon as possible, our goal is to grant this by June 2019. We have various activities taking place throughout our school with funds being held towards our primary goal of $10,000 per WISH, however, we really need your help! Since last May, we have raised only approximately $3200. Please consider donating to this very worthwhile cause. As stated, we hope to grant our wish(es) as soon as we are able and certainly hope to achieve this, by June 2019. When we are successful, the event will be held live in our gymnasium with media personnel available to publicize granting the wish but also, the acceptance of the MDJH WISH School Banner that will proudly be posted in front of our main foyer indicating that MDJH is an official WISH School. Wouldn’t it be just so heartwarming to grant our own students their wish(es)?

In addition to this, we are also a designated WE school that contributes to many community projects around the world, as well as, here in our own province. WE, all of us in the community, must work together to achieve a continuous goal while instilling empathy, compassion, morality, and kindness in our youth so that they may continue becoming productive citizens of society. The WISH School venture falls under the umbrella of our WE school initiatives in our WE Create Change Campaign, as well. Every donation helps in this cause, so please use the attached form below to contribute to this worthwhile event! WE really appreciate all of your support – together, WE can create change and we can make this a reality!

For donations of $20 or more, please make your cheque or cash payable to MDJH (WISH) with your name and address on the envelope. The WISH Foundation will issue you an official receipt once the donation has been processed.
