There is no doubt that for most of this year Wishlist has seen beautiful displays of humanity as our world came to grips with the coronavirus pandemic.
Through the toughest times the local business community has ever faced, we have received a flood of support for our Wishlist Spreads Love appeal to help those who need it most.
There was an outpouring of love for our busy nurses, doctors, allied health staff and operational team through messages of support and thousands of donated goods to keep morale high.
While this has continued, Wishlist also shifted focus to helping patients in need who were struggling. It led to Wishlist distributing more than 400 Wishlist Care Packs to date, brimming with essentials and ‘extras’ for patients who need it most. Those patients have included an 18-year-old new mum who was facing homelessness with her newborn baby, elderly patients recovering from surgery or illness who needed a helping hand during isolation, plus renal, rehabilitation and mental health patients.
We realised so many are doing it tough at the moment and a little help can go a long way, particularly when you are recovering from illness or injury.
Thank you to the many businesses and donors who have supported this appeal including Just Better Care, Sunshine Toyota, IGA Marketplace, Push Productions, Quik Corp, Big Top, Sunshine Coast Grammar School, ALPHA_H, Happy Snack Company, Colgate, Worklocker and more.
