Carly Fox, 18, from London, Canada, has an autoimmune disorder that causes pain throughout her body. Her doctor advised her to consider taking advantage of the Make-A-Wish southwestern Ontario-an organization that makes dreams and wishes come true for critically ill children.
Carly and some of her family members got tickets for a cruise in the Mediterranean year, by the cruise was cancelled because of the pandemic.
Instead of postponing the trip, Carly asked the foundation to donate the money meant for her cruise to a London anti-poverty agency called LifeSpin.
“We were blown away that this young woman’s wish was to help children whose families are struggling in poverty,” lifeSpin’s executive director Jacquie Thompson commented. That money will help at least 120 children receive Christmas presents this year.
