Dreams Take Flight Edmonton
Dreams Take Flight Edmonton

  Our flight happens annually and our goal is to take at least 110 deserving children with us to Disneyland each year. Although Air Canada generously donates the aircraft for the day and the pilot and flight crew are volunteers, everything else must be fundraised or donated. Our annual budget is $180,000 and covers fuel for the plane, park admission, food costs for all meals and snacks for the day, a complete set of clothing for each child (including footwear, socks, hats, shorts, t-shirt, sweat shirt, sunglasses and hat) as well as spending money for each child to purchase special souvenirs. The costs to run our project each year continue to increase - fuel, park admission, the US dollar. All of these factors have an impact on our ability to take the number of children that we do. Due to this factor, we are never able to plan our trip more than one year in advance, and some years, we come very close to rethinking some of our purchases or strategically discussing how to stretch every dollar.
