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.



January’s Wish Story

“Our January wish story features two amazing boys whose wishes were to attend the 2019 NHL All-Star game in San Jose.   Tanner, from Ontario, and Jason, from Alberta, travelled to San Jose for the weekend of January 26, 2019 to watch the NHL All-Star Game.  

 The boys were on the red carpet to watch the players enter the arena, and spent time in the dressing room before the game began.  They were able to meet the likes of Auston Matthews, John Tavares, Connor McDavid, Drew Doughty, Brent Burns and many of the other players in the game.  Two very memorable moments occurred when Sebastian Aho gave Tanner a signed hockey stick and Jason’s all-time wish, to meet Sidney Crosby, came true – Crosby was waiting for him in the hallway as he made his way through the division dressing rooms.
