BNI Helps Create Wonderful Memories

In 2005, the Business Network International’s (BNI) generous contribution allowed the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern Ontario to fulfill the Walt Disney World wishes of two very remarkable boys.

Adam’s Wish to visit Disney World, September 2005

Adam is an energetic 7 year old who’s favourite color is red, who loves pizza and gum and enjoys shopping at the Dollar Store. He likes drawing and colouring, playing the piano and ball hockey.

Adam’s wish was to go to Disney with his mother, father and brother.

Adam’s wish came through in September. "It is impossible to put into words what this trip meant." explain Adam’s parents. "Adam will remember it forever."

The family had nothing but praise and thanks for their wish grantor Carolyn Bouchard: "Simply outstanding!"

This wish came at a very important time. Shortly after coming back from their trip, Adam’s Grandfather became very ill and sadly passed away. But, as Adam’s parents explain: "Adam was able to see and spend time with his Grandpa before he died, and we are also thankful that his Grandpa saw him as a boy who was happy, energized and optimistic because of his Make-A-Wish trip".

Joseph’s Wish to visit Disney World, Christmas 2005

Joseph is a 10-year-old boy who loves pizza and video games. He enjoys playing guitar, spending time with his two brothers and is a soccer fan. His heroes are Spiderman and Harry Potter.

BNI answered Joseph’s request for a special family Christmas holiday in Disney World.

Joseph’s parents are grateful for the wonderful memories they will forever cherish. Meeting Mickey Mouse, Goofy and the rest of the characters gave Joseph strength and happiness.

Thanks to our great volunteers, Wendy and Susan, Joseph’s wish grantors.

"They were extremely appreciative, humble, and gracious." explains Wendy. "The younger brother was so excited he could hardy contain himself. They had been through so much with Joseph's transplant with so much travel necessary to get him the best care. They were thrilled to be able to be a family again and go on vacation to reconnect."
