This weekend I got a beautiful opportunity to work with A Wish To Wed. A Wish to wed is a non-profit organization that “was founded in 2014 in Vancouver, BC and is dedicated to grant matrimonial wishes to couples challenged by the deteriorating health of one of its partners”.
This year A Wish To Wed granted a wish to Linda and Dave. Here are their story written by A Wish To Wed… (http://awishtowed.com/linda-and-dave/)
“Linda met Dave on a dog walk 13 years ago in a Vancouver park. Some time after the couple would be confronted with one of life’s biggest challenges: Linda was diagnosed with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), a deteriorating illness. But their love conquered all hardships. The couple learned to enjoy every day to the fullest and have become active volunteers in their community. Linda spent the past 9 months knitting 40 teddy bears and donated them for auction to the local food bank. However, the couple’s biggest dream to become husband and wife remained unfulfilled because of Linda’s need for a constant oxygen feed, as well as financial challenges.”
There were so many wonderful vendors involved in this years wish including:
