Make-A-Wish Southern Alberta | “Cintamani”

Winning Bid: $1,000.00

Cintamani (chin-tah-mahn-ee) is a Sanskrit word that symbolizes a wish-granting jewel within many Eastern traditions.  As such, it seemed like the perfect name to give to the noble steed that represents Make-A-Wish® Southern Alberta in the Horses Jump To Give A Leg Up Program hosted by Spruce Meadows!

We wanted to include our Make-A-Wish community in every step of the horse decorating process.  The name Cintamani was selected and voted on by our Facebook followers.  We invited our wish children and their families, volunteers and employees to participate in decorating our horse.  We stayed true to our blue colours, and added silver for that special magical sparkle.  There are 20 large stars on Cintamani to represent Make-A-Wish Southern Alberta’s 20th anniversary this year and 400 small silver stars to symbolize the 400 wishes we have granted in our 20 year history in southern Alberta.

Each leg of Cintamani represents a type of wish we grant to children with life-threatening medical conditions:

I Wish To Have;
I Wish To Be;
I Wish To Meet &
I Wish To Go.

Clouds and various other icons, such as wands and crowns, are illustrated around the body of Cintamani.  They symbolize the imagination of our wish children, the possibilities for wishes and the hope, strength and joy the children and families experience before, during and after their wish.

We are so thankful to be a part of Horses Jump To Give A Leg Up Program hosted by Spruce Meadows, and are confident our entry will help us to grant even more children life-changing, magical wishes.

Product Description

Make-a-WishMake-A-Wish grants the wishes of children living with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy. Today, more than 5,200 wishes have been granted to children across Canada over the past 30 years, with regional chapters established from coast-to-coast. Make-A-Wish Southern Alberta was founded in 1995 by Dave and Carol Stinton, who heard about Make-A-Wish in Vancouver and was so touched that he headed home to start his Make-A-Wish journey in Calgary. Since then Make-A-Wish Southern Alberta has been improving the lives of children and families as part of the largest wish-granting organization in the world.
