Hotondo Homes’ partnership with Make-A-Wish Australia began in 2014 and has grown into a major element of the business. Our members are dedicated to helping raise funds and granting wishes for seriously-ill children.

Over the years our builders have helped make a number of wishes come true through donations, building cubby houses, kennels and even wishing wells. Our efforts have gone on to help grant wishes like Madison, battling rhabdomysarcoma, who wanted to take a family holiday to Hamilton Island so she could fly over the heart-shaped reef and visit Dunk Island, where her parents first met.

About Make-A-Wish® Australia

Make-A-Wish makes the cherished wishes of children and teenagers battling life-threatening medical conditions come true – giving them hope for the future, strength to face the challenge of their illness, and joy from their incredible wish experience.

Make-A-Wish wishes are vital, build resilience and are an essential complement to medical treatment.

The healing power of a wish

Our Next Target!


Help Make Alex’s wish come true today!

Alex’s wish was inspired by his love for the game Minecraft, a virtual land similar to Lego where players can build their own worlds and experiences.

This creative six year old definitely had an adventure ahead, and was excited for months in the lead up. He counted down the days until he’d get to do all his favourite things – like build sandcastles, climb a ladder, shoot a bow and arrow and dig for two diamonds!

And the best way to feel extra brave to complete these quests? Becoming a superhero.
