Be a #24HOPE volunteer

Make a huge impact by volunteering at Make-A-Wish HQ in Melbourne on Wednesday 28 August for our first ever 24 Hours Of Possibility Event.

Sign up

Join our friendly #WishForce team at Make-A-Wish HQ as a Crowdfunding Champion.

You’ll play an essential role in the success of our #24HOPE campaign by jumping on the phones to call existing donors, sharing the campaign with them, and asking if they’d like to donate. All calls are ‘warm’, with no cold calling required.

For 24 hours on Wednesday August 28, we'll be aiming to raise a massive $350,000 so we can deliver more life-changing wishes to sick kids across 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!

You can play your part by signing up to volunteer, helping to make the impossible possible for even more kids!

The essential information

You'll join the friendly team of volunteers at Make-A-Wish HQ – Level 1, 620 Church Street, Richmond VIC 3121

#24HOPE is on Wednesday August 28.
