For many of us, Christmas is a time for rejoicing and celebrating with family and friends. But for the countless children in Perth who are unable to live with their families, Christmas can be a lonely and upsetting time.
It’s heartbreaking to know that this Christmas may be the first time some of the children in our care have ever received Christmas gifts or enjoyed a special Christmas dinner. And for some, it may be the first Christmas they can feel safe from abuse and neglect.
It is with this in mind that I write to you asking you to become one of Santa’s Helpers and donate to our First Time Ever Fund to make this Christmas a truly memorable one.
Your donation will enable us to leave gifts under the Christmas tree for children in our care and will help us create a little Christmas magic for them.
