Hungry Jack's launches Wishmaker campaign

It has supported Make-A-Wish since 2017.

In support of Make-A-Wish Australia, Hungry Jack’s said its guests and crew can donate to the nonprofit by purchasing Wishmaker Stars ($1, $2 and $5) at their local restaurant and via digital channels during the month of February until 8 March.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, Make-A-Wish Australia said it has more than 800 critically ill children waiting for a wish.

“Hungry Jack’s is thrilled to be working with the community to help make the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses become a reality,” Hungry Jack’s chief marketing officer Scott Baird said.

“We encourage everyone to get behind the Wishmaker campaign because every Wish and Wish Journey changes a child’s life for the better, having long lasting effects on the child and their family."

Sally Bateman, Chief Executive of Make-A-Wish, added: “With the disruption and ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19, we now have more children than ever waiting for their wish to come true. With no ongoing government funding, Make- A-Wish relies on the incredible generosity and support from the community and valued partners like Hungry Jack’s to help make these wishes possible.”
