Granting Unfulfilled Wishes to Seniors

We Are Young (WAY) is a charitable organization that grants unfulfilled wishes to seniors living within the Atlantic Provinces and now within Ontario as part of our Pilot Program! We grant unfulfilled wishes to seniors with the clear intention of positively changing the way society views, values and supports our oldest generation. Through granting wishes, our mission is to raise social awareness around the inequalities seniors face, encourage respect for and appreciation of seniors and inter-generational connection where seniors experience inclusion and belonging in their communities.

WAY’s Ontario Pilot Program!

After making a positive impact in Atlantic Canada, we're excited to announce our expansion to Ontario! Thanks to the incredible support from Ontario's generous contribution, we're piloting our concept in the region and are excited to further our reach.

Andrew (Andy) Sarka, 74

Andy has been a Toronto Maple Leafs fan his entire life. He would watch every game on television, dreaming of how incredible it would be to sit in the stands of the Scotiabank Arena cheering on his favorite team. He thought about how incredible it would be to witness the Leafs fan culture and atmosphere come to life with each goal or breakaway, never believing he would get the opportunity to see them play at this stage of his life.

’24 Valentine’s Day Campaign

What is our Valentine's Day Campaign? Each year, we partnered with our friends at Rousseau Chocolatier for our annual Valentine's Day Campaign! For every $10 donation, a package of hand-crafted chocolates is delivered to an anonymous senior. We work together with our community partners to ensure these packages got into the hands of seniors who need them the most. Included in the package was a note to remind the senior that this came from a community member who was thinking of them on a day where love, appreciation, and connectedness is celebrated the most! ❤️
