You can bring hope to kids waiting for wishes

We recently estimated that the COVID-19 crisis was affecting at least one wish every day in Australia. For our wish kids, that means Kobe can't live his dream to be like a Youtuber right now, Hannah can't experience the sights and sounds of Vivid Festival, and Andrea can't become a superhero.

More children than ever need your support

While wishes are waiting, sadly, childhood illness is not. With 700 wish kids counting on us right now, you can make a life-changing difference.

Your donation will make sure no child misses out

Now more than ever, seriously ill kids need the hope and joy of a wish. However we estimate a wish a day is being affected by the COVID crisis. That’s one child every day without something powerful to look forward to.

Every child's wish matters - which is why every donation matters - and every dollar counts.

Your donation today will:

Help grant medically urgent wishes

Provide vital funds for the growing number of children waiting on their wish

Deliver extra wish anticipation activities to the 700 kids on our program

Give the gift of hope

Make sure no child misses out. Donating online is simple, secure and has a lasting impact on the lives of sick kids, their families and communities.


Impact on wish kids

The ‘world of wishes’ is hurting right now. On the funding side, many long-time supporters are unable to give as they usually would, while community fundraising events are indefinitely on hold. On the delivery side, many wishes are also on hold by their very nature, while others will continue to be delayed even as restrictions ease, given the vulnerable nature of the children we serve.

When it’s safe to do so, our mission will continue to be grant wishes for every eligible child and do everything we can to make the impossible possible. But with more children waiting now than ever before, there is a very real chance some critically ill children will never receive their wish.

We urgently need your help to raise vital funds and make sure no child misses out.
