(Niagara Falls, ON) September 8 / – Canadian entrepreneur Jennifer Blakeley spent three years traveling across Canada taking pictures of objects, architecture and scenery that resemble letters of the alphabet. Now, the brainchild behind Alphabet Photography is giving back. Blakeley has teamed up with Canadian Icon Trish Stratus in benefit of The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada to support its various chapters across the country.

“We couldn’t be more delighted to partner with a huge Canadian Icon such as Trish Stratus,” said Blakeley. “The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada is a charity near and dear to my heart, and with Trish’s help, I am confident we will be able to raise a significant amount of money that will help hundreds of children to realize their dream, this year alone.”

Alphabet Photography is the process of taking pictures of objects and scenery that resemble letters of the English Alphabet. The alphabet photos are then customized to spell words and names chosen by the customer.

As part of the Children’s Wish Foundation initiative, Blakeley and Stratus created the “Wish Series”. The Wish Series is compromised of three individual and unique frames, spelling the words JOY, WISH and DREAM in Alphabet Photography, and includes a quote relevant to each individual word. For example, the word dream includes the quote: "Dreams come a size too big, so that we may grow into them."

Starting now (until the end of September), all proceeds from customers who purchase an art piece from the Wish Series at Alphabet Photography (AP) will benefit the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. As well, for any other purchases such as custom frames or inspirational series, people who use the promo code TRISH2010 will receive $10 off their order, and proceeds from these sales will also benefit CWF.

Stratus – a successful entrepreneur in her own right - has worked with the World's largest sports entertainment company and has appeared on the cover of numerous International magazines. Since retiring from the professional wrestling, Stratus launched her healthy lifestyle brand Stratusphere which includes a TV Travel Documentary Series and Canada's largest eco-friendly yoga studio in Vaughan, Ontario. The successful athlete, entertainer, actor and fitness expert is no stranger to getting involved with charitable work. Stratus has supported a number of charities over the years including: Heart and Stroke Foundation; SickKids Foundation; Cardiac for Kids, Easter Seals; Dreams Take Flight and Ronald McDonald House.

"This is such an amazing product which showcases the beauty of Canada perfectly, and when Jennifer approached me with the idea about the wish series in benefit of the Children’s Wish Foundation, without hesitation I immediately wanted to get involved," Stratus said. "Over the years I have taken pride in supporting a number of charitable initiatives that focus on children. This is a cause I am very happy to support, and I hope people from all over Canada embrace this endeavour," she added.

Stratus just wrapped up filming her first feature-film as lead character "Jules Taylor" in "Bail Enforcers". The indie Canadian film focuses on a team of bounty hunters that will see Stratus confront bad guys in exciting fight sequences and car chases. Stratus has appeared on many Canadian TV shows like "Royal Canadian Air Farce", "Canada's Walk of Fame", "Muchmusic Video Awards", "Second City's Next Comedy Legend", just to name a few.
