Natasha's Wood Foundation

where children's wishes, dreams and stories unfold

At Natasha’s Wood Foundation we work alongside the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services (CFMWS), the Support Our Troops office (SOT), via the Office of Personnel Support Programs (PSP). Our fun kid-friendly resiliency programs include our Natasha’s Wood Reading and Art Summer Camps with PSP that inspire children to build their reading skills and meet new friends, while encouraging good eco-stewardship. Each year we also gift to youth with our Natasha’s Wood Foundation/SOT higher-learning Scholarships. This year we will be initiating our new Teen, virtual STEM Coding Camps with our generous Patrons and partners at PSP! Get ready for STEM Coding Camp 2024! For more information, please contact us.

Coming soon to Kindle:                                                                                  Twiglet’s First Birthday and A Pollen-Fairy Named Squirt

Illustrated by Veterans’ and serving CAF children and youth. Twiglet’s First Birthday and A Pollen Fairy Named Squirt are a first-of-its-kind limited, special edition picture book legacy for Children. Written by Fay Maddison, Fay gifts all sales of these kid-illustrated picture books forever.

On a very sunny day in a secret garden full of wonderful flowers, a small seed pops up from under the ground. This tiny seedling uncurls its first leaves and takes the shape of a tiny twig. Even though she is just a twig, and not very big, her heart is full of hope. Named Twiglet by her fairy, dragon and unicorn friends, Twiglet 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!


Each year for the past six years we have granted scholarship funds for youth in the Canadian Armed Forces and Veteran’s families wanting to attend post-secondary education. To find out more about how you can help and support deserving students to achieve their academic dreams, please contact us.


Summer Camp Reading

Natasha’s Wood Reading and Art Days are held at PSP Summer Camps. Each year children gather together, read and have fun not only discuss their favourite characters in the Natasha’s Wood’s picture books while making new friends and growing seeds and plants.
