Thank you so much for your support of the Make A Wish BC & Yukon Canada Foundation at this year’s Festival of Lights 2016 at Van Dusen Gardens. With over 110,000 of you coming out to see the million points of light, you helped to raise $50,000 to be able to fulfill the wish of a child after a life threatening medical condition.
If you were not able to attend please do check out more photos of our amusement park made out of LEGO bricks. With 9 moving rides, it’s incredible that in the end, after 31 days, only one was not working. Many correctly noted that the Scary Go Round did run backwards. This was intentional, as running forwards made an awful sound and would have probably failed during the run.
In case you didn’t catch all the rides in motion, you’ll find short videos in our Flickr album.
And we know there are many worth charities out there, but please keep the Make A Wish BC & Yukon Canada in mind when selecting where your hard earned dollars go. Helping to put the smile on a child’s face along with their family is especially rewarding when you know what they’ve gone through to get there.
Please do give generously. Thank you.
