UnBox Joy for a Child in Need This Christmas

 Each year, thousands of children miss out on the simple joy of a brand new toy at Christmas time. With the impact of COVID, Variety kids and families are doing it tougher than ever. That's why we urgently need your support to choose a gift for a child in need. AND you can even leave a special message of happiness for a child. Let's make Christmas come early and UNBOX JOY today.

UnBox joy for a disadvantaged child this Christmas.


Every year we are overwhelmed by families desperate to provide a gift of joy to their children at Christmas time. This year, without the Variety Kids Xmas Party taking place, we'll be delivering COVID safe gifts with your messages of kindness joy to kids in need.

We urgently need your support so we can make sure these gifts of joy are delivered before Christmas thanks to your generosity.

The day to day reality of the children you help today often means missing out on meals, new shoes or activities many of us take for granted. So you can imagine what receiving a surprise gift from a generous supporter like you could mean. That’s where you step in.

Give $38 or more today to bring joy to a child at Christmas time.

We want this impact and connection to be as special as possible. That’s why you’ll also be able to add a card to your gift which will be printed and posted to a friend or a child in need. Please use this card to share the joy of giving by thinking of someone special in your life. Send them a note, telling them that you’re thinking of them – or add a message of joy and hope that will be directly passed on to a child in need.

Many of our families are living below the poverty line and rely on government assistance to survive
And now, more than ever, a simple Christmas gift is out of reach for many Australian families. Together, with one small gift, we can ease this strain and help make Christmas a time of joy, not sadness for these families.

Christmas is just around the corner!

Please give urgently today to make a difference to a child in need who would otherwise miss out.

As you know, for the past 30 years Variety has been holding a Christmas Party each December for 5,000 children living with disadvantage, illness and disability. With the impact of COVID the day out and the gift each child would receive is not possible. That’s why we wanted to reach out to the Variety community to do something extra special this year to make sure kids and their families know kind people like you have them in their thoughts and hearts.

For all the challenges 2020 has brought us, it has also brought gratitude for what we have, the importance of kindness to family, friends and strangers as well as compassion for our neighbours and broader community.

Will you share this kindness and compassion with a child by a giving $38 today for some Christmas joy?
