Share the Joy

In 2020, our annual Gifts for Kids campaign is going online. It’s been a tough year for children and families and we know that supporters of this campaign will want to help more than ever. The good news is you can bring a big smile to a child’s face this Christmas through our amazing online platform or by making a donation. The delivery of gifts to our centres will follow the highest levels of COVID-19 safety. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope you will support this year’s campaign.

Through our Barnardos Gifts for Kids Christmas Appeal, your organisation, school or community group can help make Christmas the best day of the year for thousands of disadvantaged Australian children. 

All gifts purchased online will go directly to children in our programs, many of whom have experienced abuse, neglect, poverty and homelessness. Your participation in Gifts for Kids will make sure every child in our care has a gift to unwrap on Christmas Day.   

There are two ways you can help:

Businesses, community groups and families can also set up their own Gifts for Kids online page.

This is a great way to see how many gifts your group has raised for Barnardos. Businesses will also be able to add their logo to the page, highlighting your dedication to bringing smiles to thousands of children during the festive season.

Unfortunately this year, we will not be requiring volunteers. This decision was made to eliminate any possible COVID-19 risks to our staff, volunteers and those in our care.
