A partnership that goes from strength to strength!


Partners since 2011, Virgin Australia and Starlight share a common commitment to helping young people. Virgin Australia's community partnerships focus on Indigenous Australians and supporting youth at risk and Starlight's mission of brightening the lives of sick kids is a key part of this commitment.

Virgin and Starlight, partners since 2011As an official Wishgranting partner, Virgin Australia's support has helped Starlight deliver life-changing Starlight Wishes to an ever increasing number of sick kids and their families, and since 2011, Virgin Australia has provided flights to destinations all over Australia for over 1000 Starlight families. Virgin Australia staff say being involved with Starlight Wishgranting is an experience that's both humbling and rewarding for everyone involved.

Over the past 6 years, Virgin Australia has played a key role at significant milestones, and we're very excited to have them helping us again as we grant our amazing 10,000th Starlight Wish!
