Make-A-Wish is calling upon Australians to tie up their aprons, pick up a mixing bowl, and join in Bake A Wish.

CEO of the children’s charity Gerard Menses is excited for everyone to get involved in this delicious fundraiser.

“Through Bake A Wish, you’ll be helping to take seriously ill kids on a life-changing wish journey; giving them hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness, and joy to give them the positive outlook needed for recovery.”

“People can hold a bake sale, arrange a morning or afternoon tea, challenge colleagues to a Bake Off, or even host a team lunch where everyone contributes, and donate the money you would have spent on going out to a cafe.”

Everyone from beginners to champion bakers are encouraged to sign up to Bake A Wish and host a morning, afternoon, or high tea at their work, school, club, or home to raise funds.

For those who don’t want to bake, anyone can support an event by sponsoring a friend, or by making a kind donation.

“Just think, your cupcakes can make a rainbow unicorn fly, brownies can transform kids into superheroes, or your cookies can help a little boy discover dinosaurs!” said Menses.

Bake A Wish officially launched Saturday, 1 July. You can register here.
