For many, this time of year is a time to exchange gifts and create cherished memories with family, friends, and the community. Yet, for some children and their parents, the holiday season may pass by quietly, unnoticed, and without the joyous celebrations.

This Christmas, you have the power to make a real difference by supporting our Christmas Gift Appeal. Together, we can bring the spirit of Christmas to children and young people in our care across Australia.

Ways you can get involved

Send a gift card

For the growing number of teenagers in our care, a gift card is a wonderful way to empower them with the gift of choice. It allows young people to express their personal style and select something that truly resonates with them.

If you are able to donate gift cards, please post them to our office at 237 Cecil Street, South Melbourne VIC 3205 before 8 December. Alternatively, you can send electronic vouchers via email to To discuss gift cards, please contact our team on 1300 218 935.

Send a personalised gift

You can make this Christmas extra special for the children and young people in our care by donating personalised gifts. View our list of suggested gifts for your reference.

Please leave the gifts unwrapped so that our staff can select the perfect gift based on each child's age and interests. Please deliver gifts to our South Melbourne office before December 12. Collection may be available upon request, so please contact us to discuss.

Make an online donation

If you're looking to support our Christmas Gift Appeal but aren't sure what gift to give, you can choose to make a donation. Your generous contribution will enable our dedicated staff to select appropriate gifts for the children and young people in our care.

Together we can make this Christmas a season of love, hope, and joy for all. Your kindness and generosity will shine brightly in the lives of those we serve. Thank you for being a part of this heart-warming holiday tradition with MacKillop Family Services.
