The House The Coast Built – the project that provides comfort to so many.

Every so often, we are privileged to have the opportunity to be a part of a project that provides peace of mind to families in need. One such time was when we were able to donate the electrical accessories for 'The House The Coast Built' – also known as Wishlist House.

Wishlist House is an initiative of the Wishlist Sunshine Coast Foundation—a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to fundraising for the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service. 

One of the many projects Wishlist undertake is providing affordable hospital accommodation for families when their loved ones are receiving treatment in a Sunshine Coast hospital.  In 2019 Wishlist secured a block of land within walking distance from the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH), and construction of The House The Coast Built commenced.

Together with Ausmar Homes and backed by the generous support of 92.7 MIX FM's Give Me 5 For Kids, and countless businesses and individuals, Wishlist delivered their third house to provide a home away from home for families with a loved one in the SCUH.

Even the challenges of 2020 couldn't stop all involved with this project, and in May 2020, the house was officially opened with a virtual housewarming party to celebrate the achievements of so many.

In the short time it has been open, Wishlist House has been a home away from home for so many Queensland families during some of their most challenging times. On the first night alone, the house hosted three families in need of accommodation. Some of them enduring the most heartbreaking circumstances.

We were honoured when we received the request to donate the electrical switches and sockets for Wishlist House; of course, our immediate response was 'Yes!'.  To hear that the project is complete and providing comfort to so many, and knowing we contributed in some small way, is heart-warming.

We congratulate Wishlist and Ausmar Homes and the generosity of all involved who enabled this project to become a reality.
