This year, Make-A-Wish® Australia has joined forces with Origin Energy to light up Christmas. We're sharing the joy of neighbourhood Christmas Lights displays while raising funds to make vital wishes come true for really sick kids.
By donating to our Christmas Lights campaign this year, you’re helping to give more than a fleeting gift. Every dollar raised will be helping to give the healing power of a wish to children like Sadie, 8, who wished for “an ever-lasting supply of books”.
Ever since she was tiny, Sadie has loved the magic of reading. For her whole life, this bright little eight-year old has enjoyed nothing more than letting her imagination soar as she loses herself in a good book. Her mum, Mel, says “Sadie’s life has revolved around books almost since she was born. It’s always been this enormous escape for her.” Most importantly, reading helps Sadie cope with the pain and frustration of a serious illness.
Your support will help to make cherished wishes come true for more of the 2,000 children and teenagers diagnosed with a life-threatening illness each year. We can’t think of a better present this Christmas!
