In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Jennifer Ritter, CEO of Make-A-Wish Canada. The mission of Make-A-Wish Canada is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. We discuss everything from the unique wishes that children choose to the impact it makes on them and their family. Tis the season for giving, and there is really so much you can receive knowing you are making a difference in a child’s life who is so uncertain about tomorrow. It’s not too early to start teaching our young children about philanthropy. We hope you are inspired to make a difference in your community locally or globally whether it be monetary, by volunteering or otherwise.

In efforts to bring awareness of this global charity, please take a moment to post a wish you have seen or heard about in the comment section below.
