100 Wishes - double your impact

Every dollar donated on 24 July will be matched dollar for dollar^- for 24 hours only!

On Wednesday 24 July 2019, we invite you to be part of Make-A-Wish Australia’s biggest crowdfunding event ever. Help fast track 100 Wishes and make the impossible possible for even more sick kids!

ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

Our biggest crowdfunding day ever

100 Wishes is a 24 hour appeal to help bring wishes to sick kids and their families.

On 24 July, for 1 day only, every dollar donated will go twice as far thanks to our generous partners^.

We’re urgently raising funds to support our work with critically ill children all over Australia. With more than 6,500 kids diagnosed with a life-threatening illness each year, and 700 families already in our program, we want to make an even greater impact by reaching 100 additional families.

You can help make the impossible possible!

24 JULY. 2X IMPACT. 24HRS.

How it works

On Wednesday 24 July, every donation we receive will go twice the distance^ thanks to generous campaign partners who pledge to match donations dollar for dollar!

Thanks to our Inspirational Matchers, your donation has the potential to go 2x as far - for example:

  • $25 becomes $50...
  • $150 becomes $300...
  • $50,000 becomes $100,000!

^All donations received for 100 Wishes will be matched by generous partners up to the amount that those partners have pledged. Donations received over and above that amount will be spent where the need is greatest by Make-A-Wish Australia.

Donate in advance

You can donate to 100 Wishes in advance and still have double the impact on 24 July:

  • All donations from this page will be allocated to our 100 Wishes campaign
  • We will process your donation immediately and send your tax receipt (in time for your 2019 tax return!)
  • On 24 July, your donation will be added to the 100 Wishes fundraising total, and matched by campaign partners to go up to 2x the distance

Thanks to our generous partners who'll match $1 for $1, your gift on 24 July will go twice as far - helping take more sick kids to the moon, and back!
