Hallmark & Make-A-Wish® Australia & New Zealand Partnership

For over five years, Hallmark has been proud to partner with Make-A-Wish Australia and Make-A-Wish New Zealand to help bring awareness and raise money to grant inspirational, life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

When you purchase a product from the Hallmark Make-A-Wish range, you’re helping grant wishes for seriously ill children around Australia and New Zealand. To date we have raised over $100,000 through the sale of these products!


About Make-A-Wish® Australia

As one of Australia's most trusted charities, Make-A-Wish has been granting wishes in Australia since 1985 – more than 10,000 wishes, and counting! Make-A-Wish New Zealand has also been granting wishes in New Zealand since 1986, making more than 2,600 dreams come true.

Make-A-Wish works in partnership with sick children, their families, and medical teams to design and deliver wish experiences that complement medical treatment, support families and empower sick children with hope and joy when they need it most.

Each year, thousands of Australian kids and hundreds or Kiwi kids are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness and Make-A-Wish has a mission is to grant the wish of every eligible child.

While many of these children eventually go on to lead healthy lives, the fight for their future is all-consuming. There’s little opportunity for sick kids to just be kids, to use their imagination and enjoy the moments others take for granted.

Make-A-Wish currently has over 800 kids on a Wish Journey - with every donation, gift, and bequest, they are one step closer to making the wish of every eligible Australian child come true.

Wish Stories

Kruden’s wish for a backyard adventure playground came true just in time to celebrate the end of cancer treatment. A truly spectacular playground was designed and built just for him – complete with a set of monkey bars, a rock-climbing wall, swings, rope ladder, fireman's pole and even a flying fox!  

Kruden was so surprised and delighted when the playground was unveiled that he stood in front of it, holding his hand over his mouth for almost five minutes! 


Wish kid Oliver is a lover of nature documentaries and passionate about protecting wildlife. For his inspirational wish with Make-A-Wish Australia, Oliver donned his very own ranger uniform and set out into the bush to help release critically endangered frogs back into the wild. But his wish didn’t stop there! He also released an endangered rock wallaby. We're so inspired by Oliver and are proud to partner with Make-A-Wish to make amazing wishes come true!  


We're proud to support Make-A-Wish Australia and life-changing wishes like Henry’s. When he grows up, 6-year-old Henry wants to be a clockmaker. So his wish to be a clock keeper for a day at Brisbane’s iconic clock tower will be a lasting source of inspiration as he grows up. We’re proud to be part of the #WishForce helping to create lasting hope, joy and inspiration for sick kids across Australia. 


After nine months of chemotherapy, Nevaeh’s wish came true on her sixth birthday – this big-eared, adorable puppy Cali. “They have been inseparable ever since… the wish is like the rainbow at the end of the storm,” her mum Narelle shared.

As a Make-A-Wish Australia partner, we are so proud to support kids like Navaeh and help make their life-changing wishes come true. Read all about her journey which led to her puppy Cali: https://bit.ly/3sHI8y6


After being diagnosed with Wilms tumour, 5-year-old Rosie hasn’t been able to play on public playgrounds. So, when the chance to make a wish came along, Rosie immediately knew her biggest wish - to her very own bright pink cubby at home to play with her sister. Make-A-Wish Australia delivered exactly what Rosie wanted – right down to the pink paint, pink slide and pink swings. We're so proud to be part of the #WishForce, helping to make wishes like Rosie’s a reality.
