Looking for the perfect teacher’s gift this holiday?

Group gift giving is a perfect way to show your appreciation for your child’s teacher or coach this season.  But we understand coordinating everyone can be complicated and time consuming.

Wish and Give is an easy solution to group gifting! And you help a Canadian charity at the same time!

It’s easy…simply set up an invitation on wishandgive.ca and send the URL to the parents in your child’s class or team via email or text. Ask your teacher or coach about a charity that is close to their heart and parents can contribute to both the gift and the charity.

Wish and Give will send the cash gift to your teacher or coach and the donation directly to the charity. Saving time, being green and spreading that oh-so-good feeling of giving.

Happy Holidays!

“As a teacher, I am very grateful for the thoughtful acts of appreciation and kindness that I get from my students, but to be honest, I don’t need a lot of things.  Wish and Give allows the parents of my students to donate to a charity that is important to me (Sistema Toronto), while also giving me a portion of the money that I could spend on something for myself.  I think it’s a fantastic idea.  It is better for the environment, convenient for parents, and we get to give back to charities that could really use some extra support!”
S. Wong, Elementary Teacher at Humbercrest P.S.
