Make-A-Wish® Canada does not solicit funds through chain letters, telemarketing or door-to-door fundraising campaigns!
Make-A-Wish has been inundated with inquiries about the ongoing email hoax that is circulating the country. The email is about a seven or ten year old (local) girl named Amy Bruce, or Amirtha who has cancer. People are asked to forward the email to as many people as possible and Make-A-Wish will donate 7 cents to pay her medical expenses. This is a hoax, and the email should be deleted immediately. Do not forward the email. Doing so may open your computer to spam and virus.
