No Aussie should be
without shelter this

You and your family can be Santa this year

40,000 Aussies like Brad will sleep on our streets this year.

This makes people like Brad vulnerable to physical illness, suicide, mental health problems, violence and lack of sleep.

When Brad received his Backpack Bed he described it as being “like Christmas for me”.

Your Christmas donation will help us get more emergency Backpack Beds out on the street ensuring people on our streets get dignified assistance.

Why gift a donation this Christmas - teach your kids the meaning of giving

"This year I am donating a gift card to each of my grandkids. I want to teach them why it's important to think of others - and that Christmas is not just about receiving presents. This year has been hard for everyone, which is why it's even more important to tell our kids there are other people in the world that aren't as blessed as we are."
Jennifer, grandmother 

Parents and grandparents can show their family that together they can make a difference to the community and Aussies sleeping on our streets. The information on the back of our gift card helps you explain to your family the true meaning of Christmas. It is the perfect gift to put under your Christmas tree this year.
