We partner with Make-A-Wish Wollongong to help grant wishes for children and young people with life threatening medical conditions.
With research validating the positive effect on a child’s mental, emotional and physical wellbeing Make-A-Wishreaches seriously- ill children in 49 countries. In Australia, their national network of over 1,100 dedicated volunteers makes it possible to grant wishes all over Australia.
The wishes they grant are as varied as the imaginations of the children who make them. Whether it’s a wish to be a fireman or swim with the dolphins, each one is uniquely inspired. Yet they all have the common thread of being able to give incredible joy, strength, hope and the power to make life-changing difference to children, their families and the community.
With the help of generous supporters and the tireless effort of volunteers, over 8,000 life-changing wishes have been granted in Australia since 1985.
Here are some ways to support them:
