Children's Wish Foundation
Throughout the year, we help people make their vacation dreams come true. But there are other dreams we want to help make come true as well. These are the dreams of children who have entrusted a cherished wish to the Canadian Children's Wish Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to enable children with life-threatening illnesses to realize their most heartfelt wish.
This partnership has several facets; the two most important being funds raised from recycling, and our Change for Kids program. Change for Kids encourages passengers travelling on-board Air Transat flights to put their change in foreign or Canadian currency into specially designed envelopes, which you’ll find in the seat-back pockets.
On your next flight, please give generously to help these young, courageous, and seriously ill children, who also have a cherished dream.
On their behalf, thank you in advance!

SOS Children's Villages
Transat has partnered with the international humanitarian organization SOS Children’s Villages to contribute to the well-being of children in its destination countries, where very often even their most basic needs are not met. Present in 132 countries, SOS Children’s Villages has been working on behalf of orphaned and abandoned children for more than 60 years, and cares for over 70,000 children in 500 SOS Villages. The organization’s programs are serving over 700,000 children, and endeavour to respond to children’s primary needs in terms of healthcare, professional training and personal guidance.
With the help of its customers and employees, Transat will, in particular, provide significant financial support to this organization that gives disadvantaged children a warm, affectionate, secure and permanent family environment. Transat is working together with SOS Children’s Villages in Canada (SOS Children’s Villages Canada), in France (SOS Villages d’Enfants France), and in the United Kingdom (SOS Children’s Villages UK), Transat’s main source markets.
