The mission of Make-A-Wish® Canada is to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. The impact of a wish on a child and their family is profound. When children are battling a critical illness, so much of their childhood is taken from them. It is emotionally and physically exhausting. Granting a wish gives children the opportunity to look outside their illness—it restores a sense of childhood and normalcy back to the child and their family.
Chau’s eldest daughter, Layla, was born premature at a mere 3 and a half pounds. Chau spent a month in the hospital with Layla when she was born and saw firsthand as a parent the importance of joy and hope while navigating difficult times. That is why the mission of Make-A-Wish® Canada is so close to our hearts.
“We cannot imagine the hardships these parents go through. We can only imagine. It is our hope that our support in granting wishes will bring some much needed joy to these families.” – Chau & Trang
Working With Make-A-Wish® Canada
Our partnership with Make-A-Wish® Canada started three years ago with the creation of our Precious Forever Children’s Jewellery collection. As mothers themselves, Paris Jewellers Co-Owners Chau and Trang wanted to create an affordable children’s jewellery line to support the organization. Featuring high quality silver and 14kt gold jewellery, a portion of all sales from the Precious Forever collection is donated to Make-A-Wish® Canada.
In 2019, Paris Jewellers partnered with Make-A-Wish® Canada on both our Mother’s Day and Holiday campaigns. In addition to the Precious Forever Collection, 5% of the sales from our Just Because Collection is also donated to Make-A-Wish® Canada.
That same year, Paris Jewellers was invited to assist in granting a wish. Together with Make-A-Wish® Canada, Chau & Trang organized an personalized shopping experience for a girl who wanted special matching necklaces for herself, mom, and sister—an experience that profoundly impacted us.
