Travel Professional International (TPI) has fulfilled its commitment to The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada by fundraising for Cecilia’s wish to travel to Disney World in Orlando to meet her favourite Disney princesses.
TPI kicked off its fundraising initiatives at its annual conference, all advisors, staff and supplier partners donated generously to Cecilia’s fund. This past December, TPI revised its annual holiday tradition of sending cards and gifts to its valued partners and instead, donated funds directly to The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada.
“Family is at the very core of what TPI is all about,” said Zeina Gedeon, CEO of TPI. “The Children’s Wish Foundation has been making dreams come true for kids for over 30 years and we’re honoured to have the opportunity to lend our support to such a worthwhile organization. We know that this donation will go a long way towards improving the lives of some very special children. We also want to thank our employees, advisors, and partners for their general donations.”
In total, TPI raised $24,405 which went to help grant wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses
“This remarkable contribution allows us to make more than Cecilia’s dream come true, because of this large donation we can now grant an additional two more children their wishes,” said Maria Toscano, provincial director – Manitoba & Nunavut, The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. “On behalf of these amazing kids and their families, I give my heartfelt thanks to TPI for this generous donation.”
