|Description & Services|
|Description||The Sunshine Foundation of Canada makes dreams come true for children living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses. We do so through two programs; our Individual Dreams Program, and our Sunshine DreamLift.
A Sunshine Dream is an individual experience dreamed by a child and fulfilled by our dedicated DreamTeam. These experiences are as unique as the kids who dream them and can include (and often do) family members joining in a one-in-a-lifetime customized adventure.
A Sunshine DreamLift is a day of "Yes!" and a whirlwind adventure that transports a plane full of Sunshine Children to a Disney theme park and back home in just one day! For many children, a DreamLift is more than just fun. It’s a day to experience the excitement and adventure of a first plane ride and a taste of independence away from mom and dad. It’s a day to be a regular kid in a magical setting and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Established in 1987, Sunshine continues to spread across Canada. Headquartered in London, ON with a national volunteer network coast-to-coast, Sunshine has fulfilled dreams for more than 8,000 children and coordinated 60 Sunshine DreamLifts.
Volunteers are needed to help raise awareness of Sunshine within the community, help organize activities to raise funds making it possible to fulfill dreams for children, as well as organize dream presentations within the community when a dream is ready to be presented to the child.
