The WANTZ Committee was estabished in 2003 by several friends from very diverse backgrounds who decided to fundraise to purchase equipment for a different charity annually. The name WANTZ is an acronym of the names of the five original committee members, and it also represents what the committee does - every year the WANTZ Committee chooses a charity organization to support and fundraises for equipment the chosen charity has on its 'WANTZ Wish List'.

In 2017 the WANTZ Committee proudly supported Hummingbird House.

Hummingbird House, Queensland’s only children’s hospice, provides short stay breaks, family support, creative therapies and care for children with a life-limiting condition, and their families.

Hummingbird House includes:

• Eight guest-in-care bedrooms
• Five family accommodation suites
• A hydrotherapy pool
• A rooftop terrace
• A ‘care at the end of life’ suite
• An in-house kitchen and chef

Underpinned by the notion of creating a ‘warm embrace’ for children and their families, their multidisciplinary team provides:

• Scheduled child and family short stay breaks
• Emergency short stay breaks
• Pain and symptom management
• Care at the end of life
• Psychosocial support programs for the whole family

Hummingbird House supports families by ensuring they have access to short stay breaks, family support, creative therapies and end of life care.

Hummingbird House is a place where kids can be kids, families can reconnect and precious memories can be created. It's a joint initiative of Wesley Mission Queensland and Hummingbird House Foundation.
