Hungry Jack’s raises over $1.52m for Make-A-Wish

Make-A-Wish Australia has been supporting critically ill children in the Australian community for the past 36 years.

Hungry Jack’s Wishmaker campaign has raised $1.52 million to help support Make-A-Wish Australia in its efforts to support critically ill children, beating last year’s total.

“Last year we saw the Wishmaker campaign help Make-A-Wish with their fundraising efforts during a difficult period for charities, and we are so proud that it has been even more successful in 2022,” said Chris Green, the fast food chain’s chief executive officer.

“Make-A-Wish Australia makes an incredible impact on the lives of Wish kids and their families, and Hungry Jack’s is proud to support an organisation that changes the lives of children for the better,” he added.
 
Sally Bateman, chief executive officer of Make-A-Wish Australia, said the past few years have been “enormously challenging” for everyone in the community and for the Wishmaker campaign to have raised a record $1.52M this year, is “simply extraordinary.”

“This year’s Wishmaker donation will go towards supporting our travel and experience wish program, which has been amongst our most impacted because of the ongoing effects of the pandemic,” she said.

“With more than 200 critically ill kids patiently counting down the days until their travel wish is possible, these important funds will allow us to start making up for lost time and see more wishes granted sooner. We can’t wait to share the joy with our wish families as these long-awaited wishes come true in the months ahead.”

Make-A-Wish Australia has been supporting critically ill children in the Australian community for the past 36 years. The organisation currently has more than 850 children on their wish journey, the largest ever number in its history.
