Over the last five years, Barry Plant has raised over half a million dollars for Make-A-Wish.
Barry Plant's wish child this year is six year old animal lover Charli who has been fighting Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL). Throughout her treatment, she wasn’t able to have any contact with animals. So imagine her excitement when she was told her wish was being granted! Charli wished for a yellow Labrador puppy named Lola.
“It was as if our bright shining light was dimmed…and once her wish was granted her light was re-lit and is now beginning to shine again, bigger and brighter every day!” - Charli's mum
Charli even got to play with all the puppies when they were just 4 weeks old. But the best part was still to come, and when the countdown was finally over, Lola arrived in a beautiful purple and green tutu.
Since Lola came into their lives, there has been a huge positive change both physically and mentally in Charli, along with feelings that can only be described as “pure joy!”
They love to play fetch together in the backyard without a worry in the world – exactly as it should be for this bright, bubbly 6 year old.
With more than 700 kids like Charli currently on a Wish Journey right now, every dollar helps create more life-changing wishes. That’s why your support is so important.
You can help too by donating at any of our offices, at any Barry Plant open for inspection or when you buy, sell or rent through us.
