Media Advisory - Wish comes true for 15 year old Martinique boy



    HALIFAX, Oct. 21 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:   Fifteen year old Nathan from Martinique is at home playing with
            his wish - a home entertainment centre featuring a
            Nintendo Wii(TM) gaming system donated by Duracell as part of
            their Play it Forward campaign. Nathan also received a big screen
            television, DVD player, CD player, sound system, all of the
            hardware and cabling required for operation of the system, a
            selection of games, movies and music and an entertainment unit to
            house components of the system.

            Each Children's Wish family, whose wish is granted as part of the
            Play It Forward campaign, asked for an Entertainment Centre,
            including a Nintendo Wii system, as their favourite wish.
            Nathan's Play it Forward wish is one of 25 Wii system packages
            being donated to wish children across the country through the
            Foundation.

    WHERE:  If you would like to talk to Nathan, please call Cheryl Matthews,
            The Children's Wish Foundation, at 902 492-0025.
