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 them 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 street. 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.

How It Works

For every Backpack Bed gift card you purchase, the money goes straight to funding a Backpack Bed emergency bed for a desperate homeless Aussie who needs your help.

This year 45,800 Australians will sleep on the street*.

The Backpack Bed shelter is a study proven emergency relief for the most needy of needy. Charities are screaming for our help. Up to 80% of homeless are turned away from some shelters every night. Imagine if you were turned away.

The number of homeless people sleeping on our streets in Australia has exploded. Statistics show that for every 11 minutes, one homeless person in Australia needs a Backpack Bed. With your help, we can gradually meet this demand and provide shelter to the homeless population.

Each Backpack Bed Gift Card funds a study proven Backpack Bed for a homeless person without shelter. Did you know each Backpack Bed saves the community $3,319 in health and justice costs**.


Every Backpack Bed Gift Card brings HOPE.

When you write your Christmas message in a Backpack Bed Gift Card – your Secret Santa, loved one, customer, colleague or Kris Kringle will know you care about them AND Aussies sleeping on our streets.

You have the power. Share the hope and chance to make every homeless person’s night better and safer. Imagine it was you on the street.

Homeless Australians are the most vulnerable people in the community – they need immediate help and not newspapers filled with politician’s rhetoric or policy failure.

People want to help. People ask how?

You can see the disaster and suffering on our streets.  With Backpack Bed Gift Cards, you can readily make your contribution this Christmas as well as share the opportunity to help in an easier and faster way.

Spread the love and care for homeless sleeping rough on our streets. Give a Gift Card to family, friends, neighbours, customer or loved one.

A Simple Christmas Gift with Life Changing Impact

It may not look like much at first, but every tax-deductible gift card matters. In fact, every single gift card you purchase makes a big difference. Every Backpack Bed will help someone on our streets, sleep safer and give them much needed dignity.

The Gift of Giving

Contribute to the nights of dignified sleep of the homeless population in Australia. With Backpack Bed Gift Cards, together we can help out people without shelter in more ways than we expect.
Thank you.
