Gifts in memory or celebration are a thoughtful way to remember or celebrate the life of a loved one, anniversary, birthday, wedding, or a special event.

Individuals who are committed to making a difference are choosing a variety of ways to contribute to the community. Making a gift in lieu of flowers, presents or in celebration of an event is a special way to support Australian children in need.
