Thank you for bringing joy to children this Christmas

Thanks to you thousands of disadvantaged Australian children throughout NSW and ACT had a present to open on Christmas Day this year.

"It is wonderful to see the looks on our families faces when they realise that they can give their kids presents for Christmas. Christmas is a stressful time for our parents so it’s important to reduce stress whenever we can. We simply couldn’t do it without donations!"
Rebecca Coote, Centre Manager, Sydney

"We are grateful to receive such a large number of vouchers for our young people living independently. They would not have received anything for Christmas, this really made them feel valued and thought of."
Rebecca Jeffrey, Regional Manager, ACT

"We've been through a really rough time financially this year. No work, new baby; things have been hard. I guess Christmas was the last thing we needed. To receive presents for the little ones made a huge difference for our family."
