The Sunshine Foundation of Canada makes dreams come true for children living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses. Our vision is that every Sunshine child lives their dream.
Sunshine’s Dream Programs give the children we serve the opportunity to experience freedom from their daily regimens and challenges by having their dreams transformed into reality, impacting them with a sense of independence, confidence, and empowerment that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Sunshine Dream Programs: Sunshine Dreams and Sunshine DreamLift
A Sunshine Dream is an individual experience, dreamed by a child and brought to life by our dedicated team of dream makers. These experiences are as unique as the kids who dream them and can include family members to join in on a customized adventure. From meeting a hero to custom-tailored sports equipment, we encourage kids to dream big and dream bold.
A Sunshine DreamLift is a day of "Yes!" and a whirlwind adventure that transports a plane full of Sunshine Children to a Disney theme park and back home in just one day! Sunshine DreamLift is an unforgettable adventure with new friends, a first plane ride, and a taste of independence away from parents.
Since 1987, Sunshine has created more than 8,000 life-changing experiences for children across Canada and coordinated 62 Sunshine DreamLifts.
