Wilson Homes is proudly Tasmanian, they stand for locals and for those who choose to make Tasmania home, and they support their community when they’re going through tough times. That’s why when Wilson Homes renovated their MyChoice Design Studio in Hobart, they built the Wilson Café and partnered with Make-A-Wish Australia to start the Make a wish with Wilson initiative. $1 from every coffee and hot drink their barista makes for staff and clients is donated towards this charity, helping grant more wishes for Tasmanian children diagnosed with critical illnesses.
These special wishes are more than just a nice, one-time event – they make a tremendous impact on the lives of children by giving them the courage to endure medical treatment, bringing families together, and uniting communities.
Through Make a wish with Wilson, they hope to spread awareness for this amazing charity to each client who visits their MyChoice Design Studio, and share with their staff inspirational stories about Tasmanian wishes that have been granted though their generous donations. Wishes like 8 year-old Grace’s, who was diagnosed with spasticity diplegia as a baby. Her wish was for a black pug puppy, so that for once she could be the one to do the looking after, rather than always being looked after. Grace’s puppy Bella would be her best friend, filling a long standing void. After having her wish granted, and Bella joining the family, Grace’s mother said that the bond between her daughter and the puppy was so strong, “They are best friends. They are inseparable.”
The wishes that Grace and the other children get to experience at the hand of Make-a-Wish truly are magical. They create anticipation, joy, and hope for young children during the toughest time in their lives.
