A collection of SMILES we've created with Compassion with the simple gift of Hope...
Dreams Take Flight is a national non-profit organization consisting of Air Canada volunteers, as well as new community friends of DTFC, dedicated to providing the trip-of-a-lifetime to medically, mentally, physically, socially or emotionally challenged children. These children are from homes where the caregivers, financially are not currently in a position to travel themselves or take the children on trips.
The local sponsors and volunteers believe that we can make a major difference in these children's lives by opening a window of possibilities without limitations. Our program is not only about a trip, but also about showing these children there is Compassion, Hope and a plenty of Support for them, within their own communities!
Dreams Take Flight took wing in 1989, when a group of Air Canada employees in Toronto organized a trip that took 70 special needs children on board a DC-9 aircraft to Walt Disney World in Florida.
Fast forward to 1997, when the charity expanded to service eight cities across this great country; Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax each take a plane load of deserving kids on an all expense paid trip to either California or Florida, to enjoy one of the world renouned theme parks in either Disneyland, Disney World or Universal Studio's.
One Child at a time - we ARE making a difference!
