WestJet & Make-A-Wish Canada Release “Impact Of A Wish" Video
The video shares an event WestJet hosted where a gallery of video vignettes of former Make-A-Wish® recipients and their families were showcased. Each story illustrates the impact of the wish and how, because of the wish, the child and their family were able to stop thinking of the illness and start thinking about being kids, and even, the child's future. To the surprise of the event guests, the featured wish alumni were then introduced in person – healthier, older and wiser – to give a very special gift to an exceptional young recipient.
"This video is proof that granting a wish is just the beginning," said Bob Cummings, WestJet Executive Vice President, Commercial. "It was a powerful moment seeing these wish alumni have a chance to give back, and make a positive impact on someone else's life. At WestJet, we are also driven to give back and make a positive impact in the lives of young people. Through our WestJet Cares for Kids partnership with Make-A-Wish, we are able to work together to provide hope, strength and joy for wish kids, families and communities alike."
