How we’re making a difference

Since our launch in 2019, we’ve grown to become a national fundraising network. We collaborate with 8 children’s hospitals, foundations and paediatric services across Australia as well as multiple corporate partners.

We support projects that deliver care to sick kids in hospital, at special facilities closer to home and in some cases, at home.


an australian-first study

Around 50% of Australian children in hospital suffer from moderate to severe levels of homesickness during their stay. This feeling is linked to social and behavioural problems, symptoms of depression and anxiety, coping difficulties and feelings of helplessness.
