Christmas is an especially hard time of year for financially vurnerable Australians and their children. Rates of financial hardship and homelessness are on the rise and a survey by The Salvation Army found that 1.6 million vulnerable Australians will not be providing a present to their children this year.
As a result, the major charities and support organisations around Australia ask us to extend our generosity to those who need it most during the Christmas and New Year period. Please help however you can to make a real difference to those in our community in need.
Donations are tax deductible and you can follow the easy links below to donate online.
You can also help by donating toys, volunteering or hosting fundraisers at your work on in your community – more information on how to get involved can be found on these websites:
