Dreams Take Flight – Winnipeg have provided over 3,000 children the trip of a lifetime to Disney World. These children are deserving because of their physical, mental, or social challenges and come to us through a nomination process with various Winnipeg agencies. Not all children have childhoods with equal opportunities full of love, free from worry, hunger and discrimination. Charity, the saying goes, begins at home. We believe this is true but we also believe that many people define home too narrowly limiting it to the space within the four walls they inhabit. Just as the children we select are identified to us from the community; we depend on the community’s support to help in our fundraising activity to raise the necessary funds to provide this special adventure to those special children who would not otherwise be able to take this flight. We have little overhead as Dreams Take Flight is entirely volunteer based and appreciate any support you may provide.

About Dreams Take Flight

Dreams Take Flight stretches children’s minds. As poet Oliver Wendell Holmes wrote, “One’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.”

In 1989, several Air Canada employees in Toronto planned a trip-of-a-lifetime. They flew 70 special needs children on a DC-9 aircraft to Walt Disney World in Florida.

By 1997, the Dreams Take Flight charity had expanded across Canada.

For a very long and exciting day, deserving children live an adventure in a world-renowned theme park in California or Florida. All expenses paid—thanks to sponsors and volunteers.

When they land back home, their minds are stretched to new dimensions. They see new possibilities.
