Aiming to help bring joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions, PPG Architectural Coatings has announced it recently teamed up with Make-A-Wish America to transform wish kids’ bedrooms, playrooms and playsets into spaces they once only imagined.

“Through this partnership, we anticipate hundreds of room makeovers will be granted each year with help from PPG, bringing joy to children across Canada, the U.S. and Puerto Rico,” said Tom Maziarz, vice president, stores and dealers, PPG Architectural Coatings, U.S. and Canada.

PPG color experts have compiled 20 cheerful and inspirational paint color palettes specifically for Make-A-Wish wishes.

The partnership will help grant colorful room makeover wishes. Twenty paint palettes have been introduced for the project.

Each five-color palette is designed and named with a child’s optimism in mind, including themes such as dinosaur disco, carnival of color and secret safari, according to PPG. Wish kids can also select their own unique paint color pairings to fit what they wish to express in their spaces.

“At Make-A-Wish, we believe that granting a wish allows children to feel stronger, more energetic and more willing to fight the medical conditions they are faced with,” said David Williams, president and CEO, Make-A-Wish America.

“A custom painted space that wish children can call their own can be an uplifting, fun place for them to spend time while dealing with their health challenges.”

As part of the partnership, PPG says it will offer special pricing on paint and paint accessories to Make-A-Wish, available through its network of company-owned stores.
