Regarded as one of the best female hockey players in the world, Hayley Wickenheiser has been known for her plays on the ice.  Hayley recently added a third Olympic gold medal to her repertoire, after the Canadian Women’s Hockey Team owned the podium at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. 
 
Since 2000, Hayley has been working with Right To Play as an Athlete Ambassador. Right To Play is an international humanitarian and development organization that uses sports and play to provide life lessons to children in countries affected by war, poverty and disease in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and South America. Cadbury has recently partnered with Right To Play to create The Cadbury Right To Play program.  Children in disadvantaged countries will be able to receive these life lessons every time Canadians purchase a Cadbury product and enter the UPC code at www.cadburyplaypower.ca from now until July 31st, 2010.
 
In addition to making a difference in a child’s life, one lucky winner and a friend will have the opportunity to join Hayley Wickenheiser on a special field mission to Ghana, Africa, to teach life-changing skills to young people.
