hello

Are you looking forward to Christmas?

Written on November 3, 2016

Yes, it’s that time of the year again! Soon the streets will be full of people frantically trying to find the perfect gift for their loved ones, while the evenings are illuminated by festive lights.

Christmas can also be one of the loneliest times of the year for many children and young people in statutory care, who might be settling into a new home and face the daunting prospect of sharing the festive season with people they have only just met. CREATE Foundation sends Entering Care Kits to children and young people when they first enter care. These care packages are designed to reduce their sense of isolation, and also to provide a level of comfort at a very distressing time.

Sharing joy and giving to those less fortunate is what defines this most wonderful time of year and we would love your help to ensure all young people entering care will receive their care package. See below for different ways you can help to make a difference this holiday season.

Donate a Gift

Packed by volunteers, our entering care kits include a backpack filled with an age appropriate book, toiletry pack, stationery and toy.

Ideal donations are new, unisex, light and small enough to fit into a standard backpack for easy packing and postage.

Run an Office Gift Drive

Why not organise a gift drive in your workplace? Put up a Christmas tree and collect as many goodies as you can.

It’s a great chance for some team bonding while helping kids who are less fortunate.

We can share some of our tips and tricks for getting your gift drive of the ground, as well as gift tags templates, and gift ideas!
