Grant a Simple Wish

Shane, who lives in Ontario, Canada, was diagnosed with leukemia when he was five. He's turning eight years old on May 30, 2007, and his wish is for ONE MILLION birthday cards. Check out this video about his birthday wish. (It's real, too--besides the authentic looking video on YouTube, I checked Snopes.)

Why not take a few minutes to be a part of blessing this little boy? Cards can be sent to:

Shane Bernier
Box 484
Lancaster, ON K0C 1N0

First class postage to Canada from the U.S. is 69 cents.

A high schooler brought this story around to all the classes (at least the 8th grade) and we gave our students the option to do it. I think in just my class I had 12 cards. The printout of the story I recieved said that he wanted 350 million cards though. I also thought it was cute.

I saw this somewhere else and didn't know if it was real or not. But it obviously is- especially after seeing the news clip from a Canadian News Station.

I'll have to make a card with David and mail it off to him soon. Thanks for sharing!
