Grow the Grinch's Heart

By making a donation to Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation today, you can help raise vital funds to support the health and wellbeing of all kids.

Your contribution will go directly to the Foundation and make a lasting impact in the lives of sick kids and their families. The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation help over 170,000 children each year by providing access to the best possible healthcare, from new equipment, training and education to funding ground-breaking research or the building of new state-of-the-art facilities.  

No child deserves to be in hospital, but those who do, deserve our all.

Ashton was diagnosed with Congenital Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) at just five days old.

After undergoing chemotherapy, going into remission and then relapsing, Ashton proved himself again and again to be a fighter. At just two years old, he is now a two-time cancer survivor enjoying his days at home as a toddler and playing with his older brother

Donations to Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation through Grow The Grinch’s Heart go straight to the frontlines to support kids like Ashton in so many ways, from research, to supporting families, and improving kids like Ashton’s hospital experience during the worst of their young days.

Ashton’s mum’s message to the community is simple. “By donating, you're not only funding new equipment, but you're also funding further studies, which could in the future, hopefully lead to a cure. And that cure could prevent further heartbreak for families.”

You can make a massive difference to the lives of kids like Ashton by donating today to Grow The Grinch’s Heart.

About Carnival Cruise Line

Carnival Cruise Line have been proud partners of Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation since 2016, raising over $312,000 for vital services to support sick children and their families. Funds are raised though Carnival’s ‘Conga for Kids’ (prev.

In the past, funds raised by Carnival have gone toward lifesaving-monitoring equipment for the Grace Centre for Newborn Intensive Care, the development of the Anaesthetics Virtual Reality Project as well as Music Therapy for the Grace Centre and the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. Please donate today and ‘Grow The Grinch's Heart’ to support this important cause.
