Hayden Ashton left a high-flying job as a real estate executive behind, picked up a guitar and started playing gigs in regional caravan parks to raise money for Make-A-Wish Australia.
“I did not want more money; I wanted more meaning in my life,” Hayden said. “I wanted to inspire people.”
Volunteer 25+ years, Melbourne
Our Make-A-Wish volunteers are your everyday superheroes – and Chris Tucker is no exception. In 2022 Chris discovered a Wish Child who loved Bugs Bunny, and with a hop, skip and jump he scouted the world for 6 weeks until he found a Bugs Bunny impersonator to send her a very special video message.
Heidi joined the Wish Force in 2008 and shares why she got involved, some memorable wishes and how she sometimes feels like a superhero with the Make-A-Wish t-shirt on.

How it all started
In 1980, our friends at Make-A-Wish America granted the very first wish for 7 year old Chris Greicius – sparking what's since become the global wish-granting movement we know and love today.
On 29 April, Make-A-Wish all over the world celebrates World Wish Day:
- Around the world, a wish is granted every 16 minutes to a child with a life-threatening illness.
- At Make-A-Wish Australia, we're celebrating 38 years and over 10,000 incredible wishes.
- Wishes only come true thanks to the support from people like you.
