The power of wishes
Make-A-Wish Australia has one goal: to bring the vital, healing power of a wish to every child and teenager in Australia diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.
A wish is so much more than a moment of joy
It's a carefully planned, unique journey designed to ignite hope and build resilience. And the impact is incredible.
Wishes make a long lasting difference
Recent studies confirm what many wish families have told us: that wishes have a powerful, positive impact on seriously ill children.
They are less anxious, eat better, sleep better, and have a more optimistic outlook than their peers who don't have a wish. A wish helps children cope with treatment and motivates them through the challenges of their illness.
Wishes are unique
From seeing snow for the first time, to training with a favourite footy team, or seeing a unicorn fly; each wish is as unique as the imagination of the child who makes it.
And it's your fundraising that helps bring these wishes life.
