Create joy like this all year round

This time of year is full of excitement for any child. But with many of our wish families spending Christmas in hospital, it can also be a challenging time. You can help families across Australia create life-long memories and bring extra joy to this festive season.

Bonnie is one of 856 critically ill kids waiting for the joy of a wish. Bonnie is wishing to spend a special Christmas with her family this year, and we need your help to make that possible.

Donate today and help wishes come true this Christmas.

Give joy that lasts a lifetime for critically ill kids.

Right now there are 856 children on a wish journey. Your generous gift today, can ensure more of these children can experience the joy of a wish as soon as possible.

Make-A-Wish receives no government funding and wishes are only possible thanks to the generosity of people like you. 

Wishes aren’t just ‘one-offs’ – each wish is carefully planned, designed and delivered to best complement a child’s medical treatment. 


 

Bonnie's Christmas Wish

Bonnie has wished for a perfect Christmas – including a fun festive trip to Melbourne to celebrate with her family. But wishes like hers can only come true with your help.

This time of year is full of excitement for any child. But just imagine how thrilling it is for Bonnie and her siblings Judd and Lucy, as they look forward to having a special family Christmas all together.

“The anticipation is already building in our house,” says Kellie. “There’s a lot to look forward to about Bonnie’s wish – decorating the tree, going down to Melbourne, enjoying Carols by Candlelight, seeing the Christmas windows at the Myer department store.”

How your support makes an impact

Wish hampers of joy

6 children are waiting for a wish hamper filled with toys and books picked especially for them.

A furry friend

Nothing beats puppy love. So it's no surprise 11 wish kids are waiting for a puppy best friend.

Connecting families

You could help fund a tablet so kids can stay in touch with friends and family in hospital

Limousine hire

53 wish kids are waiting to meet their celebrity hero. And for each of them, we'll hire a limousine, so they feel every bit a star as the celebrity they're off to meet!

A new cubby

Currently, there are 11 kids wishing for a cubby in their backyard. A place to escape, play and make childhood memories they've missed out on.

Wish coins

Every child receives a wish coin at the very start of their Wish Journey. By gifting a wish coin, you’re helping us make sure every child starts their Wish Journey confident that their wish will come true.

Right now, there are more kids than ever before on their Wish Journey, counting down the days until their wish is possible. With your help, we'll be able to share some positive news with them this Christmas.
