Become an Agent of Change

Join Playing It Forward For Wishes!

Who are the Agents of Change?

We are a network of talented and resourceful individuals and businesses who want to volunteer and work to support Make-A-Wish® Eastern Ontario’s mission to help local children with life-threatening medical conditions receive a wish.

Playing It Forward for Wishes is a year-to-year campaign. We have an annual celebration get-together with all Agents of Change and their children for a fun day of golf and activities. Many kids fundraise to support wishes and this is where we can instil in our children the importance of serving their community and giving back.

Agents of Change support Playing It Forward for Wishes’ Adopt-A-Wish® and commitment to adopt 20 wishes in 2016. We pool our resources to help fundraise so that together we can make these local children’s wishes come true.

What do we do

As Agents of Change, we support and promote our members with the belief that enriching the community should be a priority, and that businesses that help fundraise for Make-A-Wish’s important mission should be recognized for their contributions. It also increases your business' Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

While Playing It Forward for Wishes is an event that encourages philanthropy in children, Agents of Change is a network that encourages and rewards philanthropy in local business.

We believe that every person can make a positive impact, and that many are searching for a meaningful way to make a difference. By becoming an Agent of Change you can network with like-minded individuals, leverage exposure and marketing opportunities for your business, all while helping Make-A-Wish® grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Where we operate

Agents of Change volunteers are based in Ottawa and support the work of Make-A-Wish® Eastern Ontario, which serves children in Ottawa and many surrounding communities.

Make-A-Wish® Eastern Ontario is a chapter of Make-A-Wish® Canada, an affiliate of Make-A-Wish® International. Make-A-Wish® has granted 350,000 wishes worldwide since 1980.
