Empower a child with a wish

Your tax-deductible donation helps grant life-changing wishes.

Critical illness can take away so much from kids. It removes any choice about how they live their lives, and any control they have over their future.

A gift to Make-A-Wish, one of the most trusted Australian children's charities, empowers kids like Brax and Dre to do anything they choose, through the power of a wish. Give to the Wish Appeal by 30 June.

Make the impossible, possible
