The Secret Wish program began as a Christmas initiative. The holiday season is a difficult time for many families who cannot afford a lavish dinner or presents for their children. CJAY 92 decided to help out by providing toys for the kids, specifically needed items such as winter coats and cash. The challenge is hardship doesn't just occur at Christmas; it's year round. So now we do a Secret Wish every Friday at 7:40am.
Listeners nominate families for a Secret Wish who are going through tough times. The families we assist often are facing bleak circumstances due to illness or disabilities. The Gerry Forbes Secret Wish is not a contest but rather Calgarians helping Calgarians. The Secret Wish is funded by the CJAY 92 Kids Fund. Therefore we only help families with children and limit Secret Wish recipients to the Calgary area. And you cannot nominate yourself...
If you know of a family that could use a hand up please email their story below. Please ensure to include your name and contact information as we try to keep it "Secret" from the nominated family. In order to do that we need to know who you are. Kelly our Secret Wish Angel will contact you if we can help your nominated family.
