Make-A-Wish® Northern Alberta2018 Calendar of Wishes
The Calendar of Wishes is an inspiring initiative founded by Make-A-Wish® Northern Alberta where businesses in the region can sponsor the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. The initiative involves a larger-than-life advent calendar, with each day being dedicated to a Wish Child. Every day in December leading up to Christmas, a new door opens and a wish is granted.
Since we dedicate ourselves to building incredible communities, it only made sense that we would work with Make-A-Wish® Northern Alberta to become their 2018 Community Door sponsor. For every individual donation that was made to the Calendar of Wishes, Landrex matched the amount, helping the organization grant more wishes.
