A wish for every eligible child
Each year, thousands of Australian children are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.
Our mission is to create a life-changing wish for every one of them.
With 700 kids on a Wish Journey in 2019, every dollar helps grant more wishes, which is why your support is so important.
A Make-A-Wish wish is not a fleeting gift - each child's Wish Journey is carefully planned and delivered over several stages to create a positive, lasting impact.
- Wishes are designed to complement a child's medical treatment, working to calm, distract and inspire at a time they need it most.
- When a wish is realised, a child discovers that despite their situation, anything is possible.
As one of Australia's most reputable charities, Make-A-Wish partners with sick kids, their families and medical teams to grant wishes as unique as the children who imagine them.
Wish kids are our boss - we start every Wish Journey by sparking their imagination! Then we put our teams, volunteers and supporters to work to make it happen.
Together, our #WishForce has delivered more than 10,000 life-changing wishes since 1985, and counting!
Help make wishes come true
With more than 700 kids currently on a Wish Journey, we rely on volunteers, business partners, fundraisers and donors to make them happen.
