Giving sick kids a brighter Christmas

04 Nov 2021

Not all kids are home at Christmas time. For some kids Christmas is spent in a hospital bed, emergency department or a treatment room.

That’s why our community of festive elves are working hard to ensure Santa finds his way to them no matter where they are.  

To help deck the halls with boughs of holly, our 2021 Light Up Xmas Appeal will launch on November 22 - hoping to raise $4Million. 

Over six activity-filled weeks, we’re calling on our community of unstoppable changemakers to help us light up the faces of all sick kids and front-line healthcare workers who have had a challenging year like no other. Together, we can be there for those that stay a short time or a long time, making an impact that lasts a lifetime.  

By giving to the Light Up Xmas Appeal, you can give sick kids a brighter Christmas. 

Tune in to Channel Nine on Saturday 18 December from 2pm-4pm for our Light Up Xmas Appeal broadcast where we will share beautiful stories of the impact made by the generous support from The Movement of Many.
