Make-A-Wish Australia grants the wishes of children and young people suffering from a life threatening medical condition.
This is an international organisation, with affiliates in most countries.  In Australia, there are branches operating in all states and territories.  The Mandurah Rockingham branch looks after the area from Rockingham to Augusta and almost as far East as Albany.  The branch has 30 volunteers, all bringing different skill sets to assist in fundraising efforts. The charity has been operating in Australia for 31 years, and the Mandurah Rockingham branch has been on the go for 17 years. Make-A-Wish has granted over 8,000 wishes to kids in Australia.
We believe in the healing power of a wish. We take each child on a carefully designed, unique journey where they anticipate and experience their most cherished wish coming true. This journey gives these really sick kids and teens hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness, and joy from their incredible wish experience.
Make-A-Wish wishes are vital, build resilience and, together with medical treatment, give seriously ill kids the best chance of survival.  A wish is a must-have, for children and teenagers fighting serious illness.
The vast majority of families tell us they see noticeable, lasting improvements in their child’s emotional and physical health as a result of their wish journey. As one wish mum told us: “It was the turning point during his treatment.
Receiving no government funding, Make-A-Wish is only able to continue to make wishes come true thanks to funds raised by volunteers, wonderful support and generosity of local communities, individuals and business partners. Fundraising events organised by the branch include:
  • Corporate Golf Day
  • Ladies Pamper day
  • Raffles
  • Sausage sizzles
  • Easter Egg hunt
Of particular interest this year is a house built by a local builder and coming up for auction, with all proceeds going to the branch.  In addition, Ignition South West Inc have organised a car show with proceeds directed to the Mandurah Rockingham branch to ensure they are able to grant the necessary wishes, including wishes for sick children in South West districts.
The branch has broken new ground by opening two charity shops - one in Mandurah and the other in Port Kennedy the only of their kind in Australia.
Volunteers are at the heart of the organisation. Volunteers capture the cherished wishes of our kids and bring them on their wish journey. Extra volunteers are always welcome.  If you would like to know more about becoming a volunteer, please ring our national number 1800 032260 or go to
