What we do
What we do
We make wishes come true for children fighting critical illness all around Australia.
A wish is vital. We carefully design each wish as a journey to build anticipation and resilience to help really sick kids in the fight for their health.
Throughout their unique wish journey, the seriously ill children we work with are given hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness and joy from their incredible wish experience.
"The granting of his wish was the turning point during his treatment. Suddenly he had something to look forward to."

> We’ve been granting wishes in Australia since 1985.
> Since we started, we've brought 9,500+ incredible wishes to life.
> There are currently over 600 kids on their unique wish journey.
> Each day, six families around Australia receive the news that their child has a critical illness.
> That’s 2,000 really sick kids who would benefit from the power of a wish. We need the funding and resources to create almost four times the number of wish journeys than we do right now to make sure every seriously ill child in the country can experience a wish.
> We don’t receive any government funding - without our supporters, wishes simply wouldn’t be able to come true.
"The joy Preston's wish has bought him is indestructible. He has a newfound determination to overcome the daily battle that is cystic fibrosis. I'm forever grateful.
