Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has announced its first global partnership with the Make-A-Wish foundation after nearly two decades of working closely together at multiple locations across Canada, the US, Europe and the Middle East.

Together, Fairmont and Make-A-Wish are launching a new global programme, Wishes Start Here, to provide one-of-a-kind experiences that transform children’s lives and help create lasting memories.

Whether it is giving a child the chance to turn into a princess, a cowboy or a chef; providing a dream vacation destination; or simply giving the whole family a special place to stay at the end of their day’s adventures, Wishes Start Here is dedicated to transforming a child’s most cherished dream into a reality, leaving them with incredible memories to last a lifetime.


The Ultimate Kids’ Playhouse will remain on-site at Fairmont Grand Del Mar all summer

Over the next three years, Fairmont is committed to making more than 500 children’s wishes come true while donating €1 million in charitable support.

Wishes Start Here will officially kick off with a family celebration and launch of The Ultimate Kids’ Playhouse on July 31 at Fairmont Grand Del Mar, in San Diego, California. With its noble goal in mind, Fairmont will introduce several fundraising events at hotels around the world to offer guests the opportunity to join them in their pledge to Make-A-Wish.
