Natasha's Wood Foundation

where children's wishes, dreams and stories unfold

At Natasha’s Wood Foundation we work with the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS), the Support Our Troops (SOT), via the Office of Personnel Support Programs (PSP).

Our fun artwork and reading programs encourage children to express themselves, find new friends and build resiliency for their unique lifestyles.  Each year we sponsor Summer Camps where children come together, have fun while creating artwork. Some of the artwork from these camps is chosen to help illustrate the Natasha’s Wood children’s book series. A children’s legacy – created by children – for children.

Success stories

Coming soon on Kindle: Twiglet’s First Birthday

Twiglet’s First Birthday is our first Children’s book written by Fay Maddison. It is a part of our book series to grant children’s wishes.

In Twiglet’s world, anything is possible. As she finds herself on a very sunny day in a secret garden full of wild and wonderful flowers, a small seed pops up from under the ground. This tiny seed uncurls its first leaves and takes the shape of a small twig. Even though she is just a twig, and not very big, her heart is full of hope. Named Twiglet by her fairy friends, she pledges to catch children’s wishes in leaves as big as dishes.

Twiglet will grow up to be a tall, majestic, maple tree, but Twiglet is more than just a tree, she is magical. As she grows taller, she becomes the meeting place, a safe place, a home away from home for many tiny fairies, baby dragons, and other magical creatures that call Natasha’s Wood their home.

In the magical land of Natasha’s Wood, Twiglet and her friends will show us all just how powerful friendship, hope, and love can be. Even the smallest fairy can offer hope to others!

Now that’s powerful magic – made from love!
