During this pandemic, the children and families we support remain at the heart of everything we do, and more than ever before, it’s so important that we help them end 2020 on a brighter note.

Each year, thousands of Australian children in need may not have a gift to open on Christmas morning, simply because their families can’t afford it. This year, 29,000 children need our help to ensure they don’t miss out.

You can now register to host a toy and book gift collection, and we hope that you can get involved. 

Before registering, please familiarse yourself with our drop off locations and dates here. 







Please Note: In Victoria,  given the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions over the past few months, we had to make the difficult decision to not proceed with the Toy and Book event in its usual format in that State.

However, we’re happy to advise we’ve been able to develop an alternative option to ensure we can still share the joy of Christmas with the children and families we support on our Learning for Life program in Victoria. Instead of the usual Toy and Book event in Victoria, we’ll provide a digital gift voucher for each child who would have otherwise received a Christmas gift pack.

We’d love your help to make this happen! You can do so by hosting a fundraiser to help offset the cost of these gift cards. After all, it’s only Christmas when we share it!
