Talize Proudly Supports Children's Wish Foundation
Children’s Wish Foundation is a uniquely Canadian charity that helps Canadian children, families and communities by granting the favourite wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. With every wish that they grant, Children’s Wish Foundation creates moments of joy that ease the pain of a child, give respite to the child’s family, and connect healthcare professionals and communities in that burning wish of hope.
Established in 1984, as they approached their 30-year milestone, Children’s Wish Foundation granted the 25,000th wish to a child living with a life-threatening illness. Every wish is as unique as the child making it, from finally getting to cuddle with grandparents who live far away to hitting a puck with a favourite hockey player. In the often painful life of a seriously ill child, these wishes have made a tremendous difference.
Talize is a proud supporter of Children’s Wish Foundation. Through this partnership, Talize has contributed over $2 million since its inception in 2005.
September’s Wish Story
“Dear AGT team,
Our family is so grateful for your willingness to grant Isabelle’s wish to attend a live show of America’s Got Talent and meet the judges &Tyra. What you did was far above our expectations … arranging for us to meet each of the acts during the dress rehearsal, arranging for us to meet last year’s winner – Darci Lynne, getting a picture taken at the judges’ desk during a commercial break, and inviting us to come to the Results show also.
Everyone we met was so gracious and kind! Kristina and Jordan, you were awesome hosts. Simon, Howie, Heidi and Mel B, we really appreciated you taking the time to meet with us and chat despite the busyness of the live show. We enjoyed Howie engaging with us as “fellow Canadians”. Tyra, we appreciated you taking the time for a quick chat and photo when you had literally seconds between your stage hosting responsibilities. You all made Isabelle (and all of us) feel very special!
We have been having so much fun sharing our photos with friends and relatives and telling them what an awesome time we had with AGT. Thank you to all who were involved in creating such a memorable experience for Isabelle and our family!“
