Can you help grant a wish?
A Starlight Wish is a lasting gift of happiness during the toughest times and helps sick kids focus on something positive, leaving the pain of hospital and treatment behind. From the moment a child is told their Starlight Wish is to be granted the excitement begins. Dreaming, planning and talking about the wish is a great distraction from treatment and surgery.
Wish recipients have experienced increased wellbeing and happiness and their family has felt more hopeful about the future. Children develop greater self-esteem and they sometimes gain knowledge and skills for a future career.
Each child is unique and so is each Starlight Wish. Designed to suit the specific needs of each child, Starlight Wishes come in all shapes and sizes - from travel wishes, hero wishes, experience wishes, gift wishes...the sky's the limit!
A visit to a theme park is a dream wish for many kids in our Wishgranting program. Check out how our Partner Village Roadshow Theme Parks steps up to make this dream a reality for sick kids like Ashley who enjoyed special time with his family at Sea World in Queensland.
Our official Wishgranting Partner Virgin Australia also steps up regularly to make dreams come true for Starlight Kids every year.
We rely on the generous support of our Partners to ensure we can continue to meet the growing demand for our Wishgranting program.
On average, a Starlight Wish costs $6,500. As well as financial contributions, donated goods and services are vital to our Wishgranting program.
From art supplies, to gift cards, computer and gaming equipment to luggage, toys, furniture and decorator items, your support will help create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for a seriously ill child.
