Give some Joy this Christmas

If you are considering making a donation to someone in need as part of your Christmas giving this year, we’ve done some research for you and have some ideas that will go to a local individual or family. Simply select a gift below and we will make sure it goes to the charity of your choice:


UnitingCare would like to be able to give struggling families the opportunity to purchase Christmas Dinner they have estimated the cost at $75 for a family and $35 for an individual.


CASA (Ballarat Centre Against Sexual Assault) would like to be able to provide a $50 gift card for their clients to add a bit of brightness to what can be a difficult time of year.

The Ballarat Foundation

The Ballarat Foundation with assistance from The Sydney Myer Foundation and FRRR (Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal) will be providing ‘back to school vouchers’ to local schools for distribution to struggling families.  Local donations will be matched by the organisers which means your $50 donation will provide $100 worth of ‘back to school vouchers’.

The Ballarat Imagination Library

The Ballarat Imagination Library will send an age appropriate book a month to a local child aged 0 to 5.  For just $7 a month you can make that happen.

Other options:

KARINYA (Salvation Army)

Karinya  works with homeless young parents and have asked for Non Perishable Food for the young families this Christmas.  Deliver to Karinya, 6 Crompton St, Soldiers Hill before December 18.



Anglicare are seeking toys for babies to 2 years old for their Emergency Relief services. And toiletry packs for men and women. Deliver to 14 Victoria St, Bakery Hill before December 18.



If you would like a Christmas Card acknowledging your donation to give as a Christmas Gift to a loved one please include a note in the ‘Order Notes’ section at checkout and we will send you one.
