See all the fun at 2pm Saturday 18 December 2021 on Channel Nine
Nobody loves Christmas more than kids - the anticipation, the food, the family get togethers and, of course, the visits from Santa!
We treasure these kind of memories from our own childhood, but there are kids today that might not look back at this time of year in the same way we do.
That’s because they are too sick, ill or injured to be where they want to be - at home surrounded by their family and that magical festive spirit they desperately want to be a part of. Instead, for many of them Christmas is spent in a ward, treatment room or outreach centre.
These kids deserve to share in the excitement and celebration that this time of year should be for them, which is exactly what Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation Light Up Xmas Appeal is all about.
Picture: Last year's Christmas Broadcast was full of fun for the whole family! Check it out this year TV special at 2pm Saturday 18 December on Channel Nine.
By supporting the appeal you can make one donation that helps all sick kids, regardless of their age or the type of illness or injury they have.
From the toddlers to the teenagers, the inner cities to the outer suburbs, regional, rural and beyond - this is your chance to give all sick kids a brighter Christmas.
Tune into Channel Nine at 2pm Saturday 18 December to learn more about the appeal and how you can get involved! The two-hour special will give you a sneak peek into the magic and everyday miracles that occur across the hospitals and services we help support.
