Make-A-Wish Foundation

Dear Tie,

On behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Toronto & Central Ontario, thank you. Thank you for making a difference in the life of a child with a life-threatening illness. As I am sure you will agree, Matthew is a very special young boy. We were delighted to have both of you present on his big day. I know that he was thrilled to meet his hockey hero!

The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Toronto & Central Ontario exists for one purpose: to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. We are part of the largest and most respected wish granting organization in the world. We have affiliates in 32 countries across 5 continents, and since our inception in 1980, the volunteers of Make-A-Wish® have granted over 130,000 wishes worldwide.

People often ask us how we can do what we do. We tell them that we cannot change the fact that these children are sick. We cannot make these children well. We cannot take away the pain that their families are experiencing. What we can do is let these children dream. You have helped us to do this for Matthew, and for that we will be forever grateful. I have attached a few pictures. There are also more that you can view on Matthew’s web site –

Thank you for helping to Share the Power of a Wish®.

Yours Sincerely,
