Hungry Jack’s inaugural Wishmaker campaign has raised an impressive $1.36 million for Make-A-Wish Australia, to help make the wishes of critically ill children come true.
During the month of February, Hungry Jack’s guests and crew were able to purchase Wishmaker stars ($1, $2 and $5) at their local restaurant and via the Hungry Jack’s app, to support Make-A-Wish Australia, who currently have over 800 wishes in waiting due to COVID-19.
Hungry Jack’s Chief Marketing Officer, Scott Baird, said that Hungry Jack’s is blown away by the nation-wide community support that Wishmaker has received in its first year.
“We are so grateful and thank everyone who got behind our Wishmaker campaign by purchasing a star from Hungry Jack’s,” said Baird.
“These much-needed funds will help Make-A-Wish Australia grant unforgettable wishes for seriously ill children, who have been patiently waiting during these unprecedented times.”
“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.”
Sally Bateman, Chief Executive of Make-A-Wish Australia, said the money raised will have an immeasurable impact on the work they undertake.
“We are absolutely thrilled with the generosity of the Australian community and our valued partner Hungry Jack’s, thank you for your support,” said Bateman.
“The pandemic may have delayed many of our plans, but we are committed to making up for lost time. This Wishmaker donation will go towards granting the wishes that were put on hold due to COVID-19. Over the next few months, our Wish Force team is aiming to make 100 wishes come true for seriously ill children across the country.”
Make-A-Wish Australia has been supporting critically ill children in the Australian community for the past 35 years, bringing much needed hope and joy to kids when they need it most.
