Get involved

Become a Wish-Maker

On Wednesday 28 August, for 1 day only, we're aiming to raise a massive $350,000 to help deliver life-changing wishes to sick kids all over Australia.

Wishes create moments of pure joy for families when they need it most. From a cubby house or puppy wish to becoming a train driver, seeing a unicorn fly or even captaining the Australian cricket team!

#24HOPE is a 24 hour appeal to help make the impossible possible for sick kids and their families.

Why 24 Hours of Possibility?

We’re urgently raising funds to support our work with critically ill children all across Australia.With more than 6,500 kids diagnosed each year, and 700 families already taking part in our program, we want to make an even greater impact by reaching more families.

Together, we can make the impossible possible.
