This sets KidzWish apart and this diversity enables us to ensure that no child falls through the gaps.With incredible support from donors, corporate partners and volunteers - KidzWish has enjoyed a long and vibrant history in the Illawarra. This year, KidzWish will celebrate 12 years since being founded. Last year, KidzWish had 44 individuals/schools/groups/businesses registered a Supporter page via our Grant a local KidzWish campaign to fundraise on our behalf. Together they raised more than $73,000 that help fund vital KidzWish services and programs.More than 650 people volunteered their time at various KidzWish events like the childrens KidzWish Christmas Party and corporate Charity Ball dinner, and other fundraisers throughout the year including KidzWish Day, the KidzWish Orange All-Stars Bowls dinner and the KidzWish Fun Run and Walk to name a few.KidzWish volunteer Sue Dawson said, I was so proud and overwhelmed to be a volunteer for both the Christmas party and the Charity Ball as part of the Myer Shellharbour team. The wonderful feeling of making a child feel special for one day at the Christmas party, to the generous donations from guests at the ball was such a great feeling for me, thank you KidzWish for the honour. Currently, KidzWish has 31 sponsors and corporate partners. KidzWish is very proud that our sponsors and partners have chosen to support us. With so many children needing help, their financial support is invaluable. With continued support from donors, corporate partners and volunteers in 2015 KidzWish aims to help another 750 children in the Illawarra to learn how to communicate through KidzSpeak, execute a capital fundraising appeal for the cost of a new KidzWish premises for therapy services and double the number of children helped through Recreational Respite Programs including our Music & Dance program and Sports Academy program.
