Thank you for bring Joy to children


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


I just wanted to say thank you from all in Sydney Metro for the hard work and dedication you have given to our families with the gifts for kids this year. Without you there would be so many children waking up Xmas morning without a present as a high number families we service cannot afford to buy gifts at this stressful expensive time. Thank you so much. 
Ryan Woodward, Centre Manager, Sydney Metro


I cannot begin to thank you enough for all you have done. We are so thankful to have been able to have helped.
Natalie Lines, Senior Solutions Consultant, FIS Global
