Island Savings is making more dreams come true for children with life-threatening illnesses. They've created a heartwarming video and with each social share, Island Savings will donate $1 to the Help Fill A Dream Foundation (up to $10,000).

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 facebook.com/IslandSavings
"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."
