It’s just not Australian if you don’t support at least one charity at Christmas.

Tear Australia

Tear has “Arguably the world’s most useful Gift Catalogue”. Give the person who has everything, something for the person who has hardly anything. For example, Twenty Tree Seedlings, Water Supply for One Person, Village Medical Kit, Child Immunisation, A Year of Primary Schooling, A Year of Family Health Care.

Salvation Army

The Salvos. Make a donation online to this great organisation at Christmas.


Why not make a donation online to support Anglicare‘s Christmas Appeal?. You can now easily buy Christmas cards and gifts from the online Anglicare shop.

Amnesty International Australia

Help Amnesty keep small arms out of small hands.

GoodWill Charity Card Shop

GoodWillCharity has card shops across Australia supporting various charities. You can download an application form from the site,
or buy cards in person at Scots Church, Ground floor, 44 Margaret St Sydney (cnr York & Margaret).
From Mon 17 Oct to Fri 16 Dec 2016 9:30am to 2:30 .
The shop comprises twelve Australian charities who each supply their own unique range of Christmas cards. Because the shop is staffed by volunteers, all the proceeds raised are returned to the charity to fund vital education programs, research, special projects and other activities.

Host your own Fundraiser

J.R wrote in from the  ‘Blue Mtns’ of Victoria – The Macedon Ranges. This year one of the members of her Apex 40 club volunteered to cater for a Christmas in July, and 24  sat down to a traditional 4 course meal in their dining/living room. The money that was left over went, on her request, to the Pink Ribbon section of the Anti-Cancer Council.  A simple fun idea that everyone can do, to benefit charity.
