Give kids a chance to celebrate Christmas

We at Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation believe that all kids deserve a chance to live their happiest and healthiest life. This belief drives everything we do to support the hospital and it rings especially true around Christmas time.

Sadly, many children across Western Australia face the prospect of spending Christmas in Princess Margaret Hospital and hoping that Father Christmas knows where they are.

Fortunately, there are a number of ways you can show your support for kids in PMH this Christmas:


1. make a donation

Your donation to Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation will help ensure the team at Princess Margaret Hospital has what they need to help get as many kids as possible well enough to spend Christmas at home.  It will also help to make Christmas special for those who do have to spend it in hospital.





2. visit a christmas lights for perth children’s hospital house

Over 50 houses are spreading some Christmas cheer by lighting up to raise funds for kids in hospital. This year’s donations will go towards purchasing a brand new neonatal ambulance for our most vulnerable patients. Visit a house and make a donation – get a full list here.





3. make a donation as a gift

A great idea for that person who has everything – make a donation to help kids in hospital in place of giving a gift. You receive a gorgeous downloadable card that you can print and write a message in so your loved one knows you are supporting sick kids in their name.





make a purchase from our shop

As 100% of the proceeds from the Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation shop go straight back to the hospital, the more you buy the more you are helping kids!  We have a great range of products on offer – be sure to order by Friday 16 December to ensure you receive your goods in time for Christmas.

what about gifts for the kids?

We receive many offers of gifts for children in hospital over the Christmas period.  Whilst this is a lovely gesture, the best way to help a sick child is to help them get well enough to spend the festive season at home with their family.

Making a cash donation will enable the Foundation to purchase what the hospital needs to help the children they care for.

Foundation supporters have already generously donated enough toys and gifts to ensure every child in hospital on Christmas day receives something special.  We have also let Father Christmas know some children, families and staff who will be spending Christmas day in hospital and he has promised to come by to say hello and deliver their gifts.

Nick and Ruby, who’s pictures you see on this page are both patients at Princess Margaret Hospital. Five year old Nick has a throat condition that affects his breathing and ability to eat. While three year old Ruby was first diagnosed with Leukaemia when she was only seven months old.

They are just two of the thousands of the children who rely on the hospital to keep them well enough to stay home for Christmas.
