"Every year, we witness incredible stories of resilience, courage, and community spirit,” noted Sheree Martin, CEO of N.C.B. Foundation. “These stories inspire us and fuel our commitment to serve. So this Christmas, we invite everyone to show us the Jamaican people and organisations from all walks of life who truly deserve to have their wishes become reality.”
Martin added, “Our Grant a Wish programme is more than just a campaign, it's a movement of kindness and empowerment which enables us to fulfil our organisation’s purpose in a big way each year. Through Grant a Wish, we are dedicated to empowering people, unlocking dreams and building stronger communities, one wish at a time.”
The programme invites persons to submit nominations for individuals and organisations who they think deserve to have their wish granted via its website – grantawish.jncb.com. Winners are selected based on the number of votes received on their nominations, with first place in each category receiving J$1,000,000, second place J$500,000, and third place J$250,000.
