Help Kids in Care this Christmas!
With Christmas just weeks away, soon people will be frantically trying to find the perfect gift for their loved ones, shops will be playing Christmas carols and festive lights will illuminate the streets. It is truly a wonderful time of the year.
Unfortunately though, for many children and young people in care, the festive season can be one of the loneliest times of the year. They may be missing their siblings, settling into a new home and facing the daunting prospect of sharing the festive season with people they have only just met.
CREATE helps children and young people by providing a sense of belonging and community throughout the year via our many programs and services but we need your help. As part of our Christmas Drive, we are trying to secure as many gift vouchers from as possible to use as gifts and prizes for our clubCREATE members. These gift vouchers can bring joy, excitement and most importantly the knowledge that someone cares.
“For me personally, whenever I know someone (who doesn’t know me or my story from a bar of soap) does something to make my life that little bit easier and provides something little, I for a moment believe that there is good and people do care” – Emily, 17 years old
Sharing joy and giving to those less fortunate is ultimately what defines Christmas and we hope you will find the time to embrace that wonderful spirit!
Please send a gift voucher of your choice from any major national retailer, such as Coles Myer, Hoyts or Toys R Us to:

Why not organise a gift drive in your workplace? Put up a Christmas tree and collect as many gift vouchers as you can. It is a joyful way to engage staff members whilst helping kids who are less fortunate. We can share tips and tricks to get your gift drive of the ground, as well as gift tags templates and other collateral!
