What is Wish By SWIISH?

WISH BY SWIISH™  is our charitable initiative designed to help bring some much–needed sparkle back into the lives of those battling serious illness and health issues. Feeling loved and being cheered on can help those going through a challenging time stay strong and keep on fighting. Every second month we gift a $500 (AUD) SWIISH Gift Voucher to send a little love their way.

At the end of the day, there’s nothing more important than our health and happiness. Our Co–Founder, Sally Obermeder, has always understood the importance of feeling loved and supported. But it wasn’t until she was diagnosed with breast cancer just one day before giving birth to her beautiful first-born, Annabelle, that she truly realised just how much strength it can give you. You can read more about Sally's cancer journey in her book Never Stop Believing, available here.

How it began

“When I was sick, I was incredibly fortunate to be given so much, blessed with so much, and surrounded by enormous love and support. Friends always made sure I was pampered with lots of thoughtful gifts and treats. I’ll never forget those gestures of kindness, they made me feel special and still like my old self while I faced the ultimate battle. I made myself a promise that when I got better, I would pay it forward and do the same for someone else. And that is how WISH BY SWIISH™ came about.”


How to apply

1. Fill in the form below. Nominate yourself or another incredible person whose life has been touched by illness, either currently, or in the last 12 months. 

2. Email us 5 supporting photos (if you’re nominating someone else, please include at least one photo of the two of you together) and a short mobile phone video (max. 2 minutes long) highlighting your/your loved one’s health battle. Email to with the subject line: YOUR FULL NAME — WISH BY SWIISH ENTRY. 

Important: FOR YOUR VIDEO please ensure that you record the following details to be eligible:

Your first name (if you’re nominating yourself)

Your name and the recipient’s name (if you’re nominating somebody else)

Your relationship to each other — tell us how you know each other and for how long, why is this person special to you, describe what you love about them (if you’re nominating somebody else)
