Blooms The Chemist has announced a new major partnership with Make-A-Wish Australia, commencing November 2016, that will see the two organisations join forces to help make the wishes of seriously ill kids come true.
Since 1985, Make-A-Wish has brought hope, strength and joy to very sick kids and teens across Australia. But as an organisation funded solely by donations, Make-A-Wish relies on the support of the public and partners such as Blooms The Chemist, to make vital wishes come true.
Make-A-Wish CEO, Gerard Menses, says he is pleased to welcome Blooms The Chemist into the Make-A-Wish family.
“Every day, six families around Australia receive the news that their child has a life-threatening medical condition,” he says. “That’s 2,000 families each year in need of a vital wish; four times the number of families we’re currently able to reach.
“Thanks to this new partnership, and the support of the Blooms The Chemist customers and staff, we’ll be able to grant even more wishes than ever before. We’re absolutely delighted to have Blooms as a part of our wish force!”
Blooms The Chemist CEO, Phil Smith says he is looking forward to helping such a worthy cause, and believes the partnership is a great fit for both Blooms and Make-A-Wish.
“We love the work Make-A-Wish does, bringing hope, strength and joy to very sick kids at a time they need it most.
“We’re looking forward to working closely with Make-A-Wish, and I’m sure our customers will feel incredibly proud knowing that their purchases they make in-store, are helping to make wishes come true for kids battling life-threatening medical conditions,” Smith says.
