Sometimes wishes really do come true.

That's what one Island family learned earlier this month when, after receiving a wish from big brother Bryce, Island Savings surprised little brother Carson and Bryce's entire hockey team with new sticks from Eddy's Hockey Shop at a Saturday morning practice in Duncan's Island Savings Centre. This one wish then became bigger than the family expected and Island Savings caught the whole thing on film at

"Creating remarkable experiences both big and small has long been a part of our values," says Rod Dewar, President and CEO of Island Savings. "That we were able to turn a wish for a hockey stick into a gift that benefitted the whole team and Carson's family is just one example of Island Savings' commitment to make a real difference in the financial lives of our members and communities every day."

Islanders have been dropping their greatest wish for somebody else into Island Savings' pop-up Wishing Wells and branch-based ballot boxes for the past month. Every wish made counts as a ballot into a draw for one of six $500 term deposits that will be awarded in late December.

"The draw itself is meant to raise awareness about the importance of saving today for a wish tomorrow," adds Dewar. "And, in the spirit of making sure this ripple starts a wave, Island Savings will be donating a dollar to Vancouver Island's Help Fill a Dream foundation every time the Wishing Well video is shared from our Facebook page, with a goal of 10,000 shares."
