11 December 2019 

To help create special memories, this year we are hosting a number of special Christmas events for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people in our care and our other programs across Victoria – and we cannot do it without your help.

These events provide opportunities for our children and young people to engage with the broader community and participate in cultural activities – as well as having their photo taken with Koorie Santa.

These events bring happiness and festive cheer to more than 2,000 people in the communities we serve. They are also a chance for our children and young people to receive gifts and extra assistance at this often difficult time of the year.

Make a donation

You can contribute by donating funds towards our Christmas appeal – every donation helps. For example, $30 can help ensure that one more child or young person will receive a gift.

Receipts are issued for donations. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

How to donate

With Christmas fast approaching, we are accepting donations using credit card or PayPal on our GiveEasy platform.

Alternative payment methods can be arranged by contacting or 03 9287 8800.
