When you purchased the ‘Chappy’s Make-A-Wish Sack’ at Christmas time, you contributed to a fantastic cause! For every Chappy’s Gift that was sold, we donated $5 directly to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
This gift was named after the 2nd Generation Charlesworth Nuts Owner, Chappy Charlesworth (Father of the current owners, Mark & Brett) who had a passion for this cause. Chappy, who passed away in 2008, possessed a somewhat magical gift to inspire those around him. Every year we aim to keep that magic alive by helping support the Make-A-Wish Australia.
Over the years we have raised over $250,000 and with your support this past Christmas we were able to add thousands more. We couldn’t have done it without you!
A grand total of $8,300 was raised during Christmas 2020
The Make-A-Wish Foundation has been creating inspirational wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses in Australia since 1985, with more than 10,000 unforgettable wishes granted. These wishes are not fleeting gifts, but are carefully planned and delivered, working to calm, distract and inspire at a time when they need it most.
‘Being able to show kids that the impossible is possible is so important. It gives them renewed hope for their future and the emotional resilience to continue fighting their illness. And puts a massive smile on their face!’ – Make-A-Wish Foundation
As you can imagine, COVID-19 has made operations difficult for Make-A-Wish, with many sick children waiting for a wish. This foundation needs our support more than ever, whether it is helping little Zack see a crocodile in real life, or perhaps assisting Hannah’s wish to go to Vivid Sydney festival.
Thank you for helping contribute towards this cause by simply purchasing our ‘Chappy’s Make-A-Wish Sack’ at Christmas time. If you would like to support this organisation more, or read some of the fantastic Wishes granted to kids around Australia, please visit the Make-A-Wish Website.
