    Chris Beaven, Founder

    "I'm the proud founder and also the Executive Director and Public Officer of KidzWish. I have never given up on a challenge. My life long experience in the Strategic Marketing and Events world has proved to be a valuable asset to my dream of assisting children who are sick, disadvantaged or have a disability. In the beginning it was to bring 'love and laughter' to children by providing them with an annual Christmas Party of their own. Now, thousands of children have access to free Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, a Music & Dance Program, Sports Academy Program, the KidzWish Children’s Christmas Party and amazing experiences organised by our staff. I'm thrilled that KidzWish is now a major children's charity with a solid future."
