This Christmas, make wishes come true

With more than 800 wishes waiting, YOU can help sick kids like Lexie feel hope, joy and inspiration this Christmas


Wishes are waiting

Christmas is coming, and it's hard to remember a time when family and community felt more important. At Make-A-Wish, bringing our family and friends together is what makes wishes possible - so being apart during the pandemic hit us hard.

Even before COVID-19 began, many wish children faced months of isolation as a result of their medical treatment. And more than 200 kids were counting down the days to their wish when COVID restrictions hit, forcing most of these wishes to be put on hold.

For our kids, that means Lexie can't live her dream of going on a family snow adventure right now, Blake can't have his very own park in his front yard, and Willow can't go on a mission to find Nemo.

Make-A-Wish now has more than 800 critically ill kids on a Wish Journey, and for some, every extra day they wait feels like a lifetime. Some kids really can't wait until Christmas.

The impact of your support

Wishes transform the lives of sick kids, their families and communities. Research shows that wishes work to complement medical treatment, helping to calm, distract and empower sick kids at the time they need it most. When a wish is realised, a child discovers that despite their situation, anything is possible.

Right now, there are more than 800 Australian wish kids waiting - you can ensure no child misses out because of COVID.

Every dollar counts - wishes are powered by generous people like you (our program doesn't receive government funding).

Your donation also helps grant medically urgent wishes, because some kids can't wait til Christmas.
