Our programs continuously impact the ever-changing landscapes of philanthropy by writing a chapter into its foundation via "Small Moments of Joy" - an initiative created in 2014.
Small Moments of Joy is a program focused on local children battling life threatening or chronic illness. The program grants "wishes" for these children - with the goal of allowing them to forget their illness or upcoming / ongoing treatments or surgeries, and for a moment or two, focus on a moment of joy.
Our goal is to aid in the recovery process by providing a positive and joyful experience for the child and his or her family, but with a focus on the young person.
Harboured in this program is the belief that positivity aids in the recover and healing process. Rachel's Kids first Small Moment was the purchase of a pool for a local boy, Joel Fast, who is living with developmental delays, as a result of cancer treatments. Since then we've helped spread some joy to well over 50 kids in SD&G and surrounding area.
If you or someone you know and love could benefit from our "Small Moments of Joy" program, please complete the application form below. The application will be presented to our Board of Directors who will then select a family to offer some financial assistance based on the need. Families will be contacted should they be selected.
