  • Students For Wishes: Queen's University

Who We Are

Students for Wishes Queen's University was created in 2009 by a group of Queen's students who had previously volunteered for other charitable organizations and wanted to see the direct impact of their efforts. The group decided that Make-A-Wish® was exactly what they were looking for.

 

Founding the group enabled students to spread the message of hope, strength and joy while making a postivie imact on the lives of children in the community we call home for four years while at Queen's. It was also a great opportunity for Make-A-Wish to expand into the Kingston area, which was somewhat underserviced due to its distance from the Eastern Ontario chapter's office in Ottawa.

We help bring hope, strength and joy to children with life threatening medical conditions by:

  • Fundraising in support of Make-A-Wish® Eastern Ontario and wishes in the Kingston area

Our group attends and participants in all wishes in the Kingston area. Our executive team receive training from Make-A-Wish so that we can coordinate visits with Kingston wish children.

 

Our Events

We hold events throughout the school year both on- and off-campus.

Our main event is HaiRaiser. This is an annual event where people cut, shave, or dye their hair blue to raise funds for Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. Hair donations of 8-10 inches go to Pantene Beautiful Lengths & Children with Hair Loss. There is a $25 minimum donation for participants and all pledge money earned is used to grant the wishes of local children in Kingston.

 

For more information on how to get involved please visit the HaiRaiser Kingston event page.
