Plant a fundraising daisy for wishlist virtual garden

Hospital charity Wishlist has launched its virtual Wishlist Daisy Garden to symbolise 25 years of compassionate support for patients and families on the Sunshine Coast and in Gympie.

Wishlist fundraising and partnerships manager Lisa Wilson is inviting 2500 kind-hearted individuals to contribute $25 each to help secure the next 25 years of essential support for the growing health needs of the community.

“For just $25, you can create a digital tribute in your name or in honour of a loved one by planting a daisy and changing a life,” Mrs Wilson says.

“The virtual Wishlist Daisy Garden is interactive – you can plant a daisy and have your friends and family water or give it some love to help it grow.”

The appeal aims to raise more than $62,000 to fund priority needs on the charity’s ‘wish list’, including power wheelchairs for patients rehabilitating at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, music therapy for palliative care patients, and support services such as pet therapy and the Clown Doctors.
