The face masks come in three designs, each costing $18.
The Make-A-Wish Singapore face masks designed by children with critical illnesses are now available for purchase.
The face masks come in three designs, with each costing $18. It comes in two sizes – 22cm x 13cm for adults and 18cm x 11.5cm for kids.
The masks were previously available for preorder only as part of World Wish Day celebrations on Apr 29.
Make-A-Wish Singapore is part of the world’s largest wish granting organisation, Make-A-Wish, which helps to fulfil the wishes of kids who have serious illnesses.
The three masks are designed by eight-year-old Arshad and his sister six-year-old Yasmin, 19-year-old Amelia and 16-year-old Joanna.
Arshad suffers from Cerebral Palsy and is non-communicative, so Yasmin designed the mask on his behalf and based on her wish for him. Yasmin drew candies and desserts as she enjoys sweet stuff and wishes that her brother can enjoy it together with her.
Amelia, who has congenital heart disease, hopes to travel to Japan once the COVID-19 situation eases up, which is why her design is inspired by Mount Fuji.
Joanna’s mask is inspired by a Native American legend which states that the dream catcher’s web will filter off all bad dreams, as she hopes for everyone to only dream about good and positive things. She has a condition known as Medulloblastoma.
The masks can be ordered here. All proceeds from the sale of the face masks will be channelled to helping the charity satisfy the children’s wishes.
