#WISHUpClose 2020


From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. 


Thanks to your generosity, we were able to surpass our new goal and raise $41,466.78 towards our WISH Up-Close Campaign! Local artist Zoë Pawlak has also pledged an additional $9,000! 

$41,466.78 / $40,000 Raised

We may have not been able to meet in person, but the community’s allyship is very much alive! 


WISH, like many other charities, relies heavily on the proceeds generated through fundraising events. Every year, we raise thousands of dollars to help support street-based sex workers. Your contribution to our virtual WISH Up-Close Campaign will go directly towards our Supportive Employment Program. 

Sex workers wishing to seek mainstream employment have limited opportunities and face high barriers. The Supportive Employment Program seeks to reduce these barriers by providing opportunities to develop the skills, experience and confidence required for women seeking to reduce their reliance on sex work and/or to transition out of sex work altogether if that is their goal. 

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
