The month of October will see KiwiOz pulling together with the community to raise much needed funds for the Make-A Wish Foundation. On the 27th of October at 10am we will be gathering at Clapham Common for a morning filled with walking, face painting, Halloween dress ups and so much more fun. Everyone is welcome to come along, the more the merrier!
A little bit of an insight from the Make-A-Wish Foundation to bring more awareness to what it is they do -
"Our purpose is simple. We grant magical wishes to enrich the lives of children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions.
The children we support are often enduring things most of us could never imagine. They’re going through gruelling treatment, endless medical appointments and spending time in hospital away from their home, friends and family. A far cry from the childhood they should be enjoying.
Granting their One True Wish provides seriously ill children with hope for the future, strength to cope and resilience to fight their condition. They’re given quality time away from the daily realities of living with their condition and have chance to make magical memories they can treasure forever – whatever their future may hold.
Last year, more than 2,300 seriously ill children turned to us, more than ever before. And with this number constantly growing, we can only grant their wishes with the help of people like you.
We want to transform the lives of 1,000 children this year by granting their One True Wish.
We receive no government funding – so rely on the support of people like you."
