WE ARE YOUNG
Granting Unfulfilled Wishes to Seniors
We Are Young is a charitable organization that grants unfulfilled wishes to seniors living within the Atlantic Provinces (Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland & Labrador). We grant unfulfilled wishes to seniors with the clear intention of 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 facilitate inter-generational connection where seniors experience inclusion and belonging in our communities.
Stay up to date on our most recent fundraising campaigns, events, media coverage, and wishes granted!

’23 Valentine’s Day Campaign
Our Valentine's Day Campaign is now closed! We partnered with our friends at Rousseau Chocolatier again for our annual Valentine's Day Campaign! Our goal to delivering 1,000 Valentine's to seniors in our community was far surpassed as we raised enough money to deliver 1,269!! There are not enough words to express our gratitude to each and everyone of you. We can't wait to do it all over again in 2024!
