My personal message

Wishes for Olivia was formed in March 2013, after the sudden and untimely passing of Olivia Grace White, the daughter of Wishes for Olivia founder Jennifer White.

Olivia was only 5 and a half when she went to sleep on Christmas Day and simply never woke up. It was, of course, the most devastating thing that could happen to a family. To lose a child so suddenly, such a bright, shining light in our lives, has fundamentally changed who we are. Olivia was an amazing little girl. Anyone who knew her would tell you how very special she was. Not only was she beautiful and smart, but so very kind to everyone. She adored school and her friends, loved dressing up in skirts and dresses (pink and purple if possible), she loved her little sister Aurelia, but above all, she loved Disney.

She really, really loved Disney. Really.

We were very lucky that we were able to take Olivia to Walt Disney World to visit her dear friends; the Princesses. She would have long conversations with Cinderella and Belle, hug Ariel, and curtsy with Merida. Disney was a dream come true for Olivia, and she talked about it endlessly. She would always say “Mumma? Do you remember when we went to Disney?” followed by her favourite memory; the fireworks, going to the Bibbiddi Bobbiddi Boutique, or throwing a coin into Cinderella’s wishing well. She would make a wish and hope it would come true. Olivia would have wanted other children to visit Disney. She would have wanted them to make their wish and have it come true.

So, in her name, we created Wishes for Olivia.

Wishes for Olivia is a group dedicated to raising money for Make-A-Wish Foundation of Canada. As part of the legacy of Olivia Grace White, we strive to make wishes come true for children across Canada through fundraising, and attending and supporting group events. Since inception, we have raised over $200,000 for Make a Wish.

Wishes for Olivia is thrilled to present The Fourth Annual Princess Ball, April 23rd 2017.

To assist our fundraising efforts, please consider making a donation here to Make a Wish Foundation of Canada. You will receive a tax receipt for any contribution over $25.

100% of your donation will go to Make-A-Wish Foundation of Canada to grant the wishes of children living with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical condition. For many of them, it marks a turning point in their fight against their illnesses.
