Earlier this year I was invited to work with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. For those of you who aren’t familiar with their work, the Make-A-Wish Foundation grants magical wishes to children who are fighting life-threatening conditions. One of such wishes is a room make-over.
My wish child was a little boy called Jack, who like many a 4-year old, is mad about Toy Story. Jack’s illness means he is severely limited in his mobility and his parents wished for him to have happy place where he would be surrounded by his favourite characters.
This was Jack’s room before the make-over:
And this is his new bedroom – with all Jack’s friends present!
I couldn’t have done it without the help of some very generous sponsors who all rallied around to make Jack’s wish come true. Thank you so much to all of these wonderful people and organisations:
Photowall (self-adhesive Toy Story wall mural – adapted to fit Jack’s wall)
Wooden Blinds Direct (wooden venetian blind)
Love Carpet (Wilton Victoria carpet)
London Flooring Contractors (carpet fitters)
Skandivis (Happy Cat beanbag)
Little Baby Company (cloud duvet set)
Hello Monkey (number art print)
Babyface (denim letter J, bunting and other goodies)
Curtains Made Simple (cushions)
And of course Tony, who hammered, sawed and climbed into the loft without a grumble to make Jack’s wish come true.
Thank you guys! x
