Our Gifts for Kids Christmas appeal

Christmas for a child should be one of the happiest days of the year. A day surrounded by family, filled with love and the excitement of a gift from Santa. Unfortunately for tens of thousands of Australian children living in disadvantaged households, Christmas can be a day filled with disappointment and confusion when they awake to find that Santa hasn’t been and there are no presents to open. The Barnardos Gifts for Kids Christmas Gift Appeal believes every child deserves to feel joy and happiness during the festive season, and that no child should have to go without. Collecting both cash and physical gifts, Barnardos Gifts for Kids supplies thousands of vulnerable Australian children with gifts so they too experience the joy of Christmas.
