Our Little Wishes

We know from experience that Little Wishes go along WAY. A small act of kindness can make the world of a difference in lives of our seniors. At the height of the pandemic, our care packages were supplementary to our big wishes, but now our little wishes have taken on a new shape. See below how we are continuing to create “little wishes” for seniors throughout the year in a multitude of ways.

Valentine’s Day Campaign

Give a Valentine to a senior! We've partnered with our friends at Rousseau Chocolatier again for our second year. For every $10 donated, WAY will deliver a package of hand crafted chocolates to a senior in our community. Included in the package will be a note to remind them that this came from you, a community member who is thinking of them on a day where love, appreciation, and connectedness are celebrated the most.

Holiday Happiness Card Campaign

Thank you to everyone for supporting our Holiday Happiness Campaign. Because of you, 800 of our holiday cards have touched the hearts of 800 seniors this holiday, 2021. Did you miss out on our Holiday Happinesses Card Campaign? Our annual campaign will be back November 2022.

The Butterfly Effect

In honour of National Seniors Day and Treaty Day on October 2021, WAY, partnered with RBC, and RBC employees to create the “The Butterfly Effect”. A concept that was created to encourage more conversation to be had amongst generations, and, in turn, more wisdom to be shared. Going back to our core mission to help change the way society views and values our oldest generation. We look forward to doing this again in 2022!

Care Packages

This innovative approach that we took during the COVID-19 pandemic is an example of a “small act of kindness” that others can adopt and carry out for a senior in their life.  As a result of this campaign, we delivered nearly 4,000 care packages overall, and generated countless testimonials that indicated the package had a profound impact on seniors mental wellbeing.  Although our "Little Wishes" have taken on new shapes, we feel it's important to continue to sharing the story of how our "Little Wishes" turned into more than we ever though possible.
