WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
During this Covid-19 lockdown period we are still accepting and processing all wishes that are scanned and sent electronically.
Regrettably, as is the case with the large majority of New Zealand workplaces during Covid-19, our staff are utilising remote working for safety reasons. This means we are unable to process hard-copy (physical) wish applications that are mailed / delivered to our office.
However, all wishes that are scanned and sent electronically will be processed. Email your completed and scanned application to firstname.lastname@example.org
All New Zealand children aged 3-17 years old battling a critical illness are eligible. Make-A-Wish is dedicated to making every eligible child's wish come true.
Many children go on to recover. However, during times of treatment, wish children and their families are going through very tough times. The child may be missing out on school, sports, and finding it hard to stay in touch with friends. The wish experience has been found to significantly impact wish children, providing life-changing moments and a shared diversion with the families, friends and their communities away from the medical environment.
