It all started with a wish from an incredible boy, Jacob. A wish for everyone to be happy. Even though Jacob is no longer here, his legacy and wish have had an incredible impact and are felt by our community through the Jacob’s Wish Foundation. Jacob’s Wish is run by a team that is determined to continue to reach out directly to families undergoing difficult times. They purchase things like Sensory Lights, iPads, collected Gift Cards, Grocery Cards, ITunes Cards and any other item of need with the help and generosity of our community and fundraising and deliver these special items to the families directly. Sometimes the items are even delivered by the child’s favourite Character with the help from the volunteers at Positively Princess’d.
It started in 2014 with two sisters – Stacey & Stephanie, two costumes and a desire to spread kindness and cheer to sick and struggling kids. Shortly after their sister Jocelyn joined as well as their parents, husbands and kids. Positively Princess’d now has 30+ volunteers and almost 40 princesses, princes, fairies & superheroes! Aside from hanging out with the superhero kiddos at the Ronald McDonald House & Stollery Children’s Hospital, they also love attending sick kid birthday parties, planning or volunteering at charity fundraisers, celebrating little warrior milestones & visiting inner city schools.
