Every year, the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada arranges dream destination trips for seriously and terminally ill children and their families. Through a sponsorship with the member plans of the Canadian Association of Blue Cross Plans, each plan provides premium-free travel coverage for ill children and their families. Alberta Blue Cross is a strong supporter of Children’s Wish. In 2016, we issued 55 contracts in support of Children’s Wish Foundation clients being able to travel and over the past five years we supported 313 trips with the most popular destinations being Disneyworld in Florida, Disneyland in California, and Hawaii.
This year, we are taking part in a special event for Children’s Wish Month. Instead of buying your daily coffee, Children’s Wish is challenging everyone to “#GiveALatte, Grant a Wish.” We love the spirit of this idea and are encouraging our employees to “#GiveALatte, Dress Casual, Grant a Wish” on March 30.
