Here at Tradelink we’re committed to doing our bit for the community. Every few years we ask our crew what charity they’d like to support and, we are proud to say that, our team overwhelmingly voted to get behind Make-A-Wish Australia.
Make-A-Wish makes the cherished wishes of children and teenagers battling life-threatening medical conditions come true – giving them hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness, and joy from their incredible wish experience.
Make-A-Wish wishes are vital, build resilience and are an essential complement to medical treatment. Each day, six families around Australia receive the news that their child has a serious illness. That’s 2,000 really sick kids and teens who need the healing power of a wish each year. Yet, currently, Make-A-Wish is able to take just over 500 children and teenagers on a unique wish journey annually.
Through our partnership, we are committed to help make even more of these much needed wishes come true, helping Make-A-Wish achieve their goal to reach each and every one of the really sick kids and teens with the healing power of a wish.
“I’m humbled that Tradelink staff voted Make-A-Wish as their preferred charity beneficiary, and wish to thank all 200 stores for their fundraising efforts over the past year.
“We’re delighted to have the backing of such passionate and community driven individuals. Through this support, Tradelink is helping wishes come true across Australia – giving very sick kids and teens hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness, and lasting joy from their bespoke wish experience.
“Thank you again, and I hope this will be the first of many years that we look back and celebrate our great partnership.”
