Help Connect Kids in Care this Christmas
Christmas is such a fabulous time of year. Friends, family, food, festivities. Going Home!
However for children and young people in out-of-home care, this can be one of the loneliest and confronting times of the year. Christmas is a reminder for a lot of young people in care of the challenges they face, their separation with siblings and family, and feelings of isolation.
After working with children and young people with a care experience for over 20 years, we understand how important it is to have fun events to simply connect young people who are experiencing simular journeys. Because of this, CREATE’s Christmas Connection events have become legendary! They are hosted in every state and territory across Australia engaging thousands of kid’s in care.
However, we need your help to continue awesome initiatives like our Christmas Connection events. This year, become a part of the CREATE Community by donating so that we can continue to ensure that every child and young person in care knows they are a part of community and that they do belong.
There are so many ways to support CREATE this Christmas time:
You can make a difference today by supporting CREATE’s mission of creating a better life for children and young people in care. Why not make it an ongoing donation or approach your workplace for dollar matching opportunities!

Host a Christmas Fundraiser for CREATE!
Why not organise a Christmas Fundraiser in your workplace or with friends? Maybe the boss fancies dressing as Santa for day or sign the team up to a fun run?
It can be as simple as putting up a Christmas tree and collect as many and donations as you can or host a Christmas lunch to raise critical funds to connect kids in care.
It is a joyful way to engage staff members whilst helping kids who are facing the toughest time of year. We can share tips and tricks to get your Christmas donation collection off the ground, as well as email templates and other collateral!
