Today’s fundraising campaign comprises three fundraisers:
- Bloomin’ Hilarity! Buds in Bloom© is proud to announce the fundraising campaign Bloomin’ Hilarity for our children in Quebec. In collaboration with generous donors, this campaign is a unique way to make a charitable contribution through belly laughter. To date, we raised more than $10,000 to establish this fund.

Thanks to our generous contributors, since the first fundraising event in 2009, over 300 children were followed by an expert in a specialized service within two months of the family’s request.
The 48-Hour Ride in 2015 of Make-A-Wish Quebec was a huge success. Our Buds on Wheels team contributed to the event September 25, 26, 27. A shared 48 hours that were touching and powerful, highlighted by the hundreds of children in Quebec, and the thousands of children in the world who had their wish granted by Make-A-Wish. Two important surveys reported unpredictable benefits by a wish being granted. In 2013, one survey of 3000 adults who had their wish granted as children, showed that nearly 100% of participants say that their well-being was improved after getting their wish. Additionally, more than 70% reported that their granted wish saved their life! Our experience at this event reinforces the Buds in Bloom© cause; to offer our children with special needs what they need today without wait times.

Even before the foundation in 2011 of Buds in Bloom©, nonprofit organization, several events have already allowed us to help our children. In 2009, the Kids Therapy Now event, sponsored by West Jet Airlines and the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise in Banff, helped raise more than $4000. This amount served to give bursaries to 5 children to subsidize specialized services. These services included an adapted sports program, therapy or early intervention. A modest start, but oh how encouraging! In 2010, volunteers gathered over 200 free plants, which were sold at the Buds for Children event held at the Pierrefonds Comprehensive High School. Local merchants also got involved in the Toonie for Tots fundraising campaign. We are proud that the total proceeds helped the cause!!
