Wishing Tree Appeal

Make a donation

Send a powerful message of care and compassion to children and young people this festive season.

At OzChild, we believe every child deserves to experience the joy of the holiday season. Unfortunately, for many children and families in our community, this time of year can be challenging due to financial hardship or other difficult circumstances.

Every year OzChild supports more than 1,000 children and young people in foster or kinship care and many more children and families who participate in our family preservation and reunification programs.

Your generous support will allow us to relieve the pressure of financial hardship that is felt by so many at Christmas time and make the children and young people who receive the gifts feel special and loved.

Make a donation to the OzChild Wishing Tree to ensure all children and young people feel the joy of Christmas!

How it Works:

  1. Choose a Wish: Browse through the selection of gifts hand-picked by OzChild children and young people. Each gift represents a present that would bring joy and comfort to a child or young person in need this holiday season.
  2. Grant a Wish: Select a gift that resonates with you and purchase it to fulfill it. Whether it’s a toy, a bike or a book, your generosity will make a meaningful difference in a child or young person’s life.
  3. Spread the Word: Share the OzChild Wishing Tree with your friends, family and colleagues to amplify the impact of your generosity. Together, we can make a collective difference in the lives of many children and families.

All of this can be done online via your computer, mobile or tablet from the comfort of your own home.

Purchase a gift and deliver a smile.

Your support of the OzChild Wishing Tree not only provides material gifts but also sends a powerful message of care and compassion to children and young people who may be experiencing hardship or uncertainty. By coming together as a community, we can create moments of joy and hope that will last far beyond the holiday season.

Together, let’s make wishes come true. Join us in bringing smiles to the faces of children and families in need this holiday season.

Gifts purchased online are delivered to children and young people supported by OzChild.

All donations are distributed to our teams across Australia to be delivered to the children supported by our programs and services. You can rest assured all presents will make it by Christmas Day.

Your kindness and generosity have the power to make a lasting impact on those who need it most. It’s fun, quick and easy, and will help spread the joy of Christmas that every child and young person deserves! Thank you for your support of the OzChild Wishing Tree!
