Australian bedding and homewares behemoth Adairs has just released three new pillowcases, the full sales profits of which will be donated directly to Make-A-Wish Australia.

Late last year, wish kids Noah (7), Christina (16) and Dara (8) visited the Adairs’ HQ in Scoresby, Victoria where they created their hand-drawn designs, each inspired by their wishes.

‘Dara, Noah and Christina had the unique opportunity to share the power of their wish experience, helping the wish journey and positive impact keep going,’ says Rachael Stewart, GM Marketing and Business Partnerships at Make-A-Wish Australia. ‘They’ll be thrilled to know their drawings will be inspiring people in homes all over Australia! Thank you to Adairs and everyone who supports Make-A-Wish by purchasing one of these pillowcases, helping to make life-changing wishes come true for critically ill kids.’

‘Puppy Party’ by Dara

Dara wished for the ‘ultimate puppy experience’. When Dara was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, the promise of a puppy kept her going through two years of tough treatment. Her beloved dog Koko arrived, but she continued to dream about even more puppies. So, Dara decided for her wish she wanted to have the ultimate puppy experience – to spend the whole day surrounded by puppies and just as importantly, to make sure they all had loving families to go home to.

Dara spent the day with over 23 puppies from a shelter, going around different puppy stations playing with all of the puppies. There was a cuddle corner, grooming station, training station, puppy arts and crafts and the day ended with all 23 puppies finding their forever homes. Her artwork is a reflection on this wonderful day.

‘Veggie Patch’ by Noah

Noah, diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease, wished to have his own veggie patch so he could cook for his Mum and Dad and care for his plants. Noah selected this as his wish because he wanted his own space that he could hang out in with his friends and grow his very own plants. ‘We’ll be able to grow safe foods and hopefully, some of these plants will be the first things that go in his feeding tube. On Noah’s worst days he’ll be able to look at everything and see what’s going on – it’s such a good, sensory place, and he’s going to get such joy seeing everything grow,’ says Noah’s Mum.

Noah drew inspiration for his pillowcase from his favourite elements from the garden.

‘Ocean Reef’ by Christina

Christina, diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, is passionate about nature and animals and in particular seeing them in their natural habitat. She wished to visit Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia and see the unique wildlife in its most natural state.

Christina’s trip includes glamping, snorkelling and swimming with the turtles – which make an appearance on her stunning artwork!

This special range is available from today (Wednesday, February 21st) at selected Adairs stores and online at
