Since 2017, Mico have been working alongside Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes to Kiwi kids all over the country living with critical illness. The wishes make a huge difference in not only the lives of kids who are undergoing grueling treatment or living with illnesses which are often heartbreaking, but their families and loved ones. What is truly special about being involved in the wish fulfillment process is those who help out often receive the biggest gift – the gift of giving and knowing they’ve made an impossible situation just that little bit easier for the kids and families involved.
Here are some of the wishes we’ve been involved in…
Kapiti boy jumping for joy
After three flyaway trampolines from his very windy back yard,
it’s not surprising twelve-year-old Kapiti Coast kid Terrence
wished for a trampoline that will stay put!
Haami gets out of
this world wish
On the twenty-fourth of May, eleven-year-old Matamata boy Haami had
his wish for a space bedroom granted with the help of the Mico Region 2 crew.
Paint job brings the team together
For seven-year-old Krisha from Auckland who is in remission from cancer,
getting a bedroom pimped out in her favourite colours was a wish come true…
Nine year old Tim from Mission Bay, Auckland had his one true wish
granted in July when the Mico team helped build him
his very own treehouse.
The Mico boys from Region 2 got their purple paintbrushes out
to give eleven year old Vesty from Rotorua a galaxy themed bedroom
makeover that is out of this world
Alex's All Blacks Bedroom
