The Spirit of Giving

Three fun ways to celebrate and save this Christmas

Each year it seems like the months just race by, and before you know it, it’s time to get cracking on that Christmas shopping list again! To help relieve your festive stress — and as a bonus, support kids in Australia and all around the world — we have put together our three favourite ways to celebrate the silly season with Save the Children.

Santa, the Humanitarian

We all know about the night before Christmas, but have you ever wondered what jolly Saint Nick gets up to for the rest of the year?

To celebrate this festive season — and generous support from people like you — we’ve had a cheeky crack at re-imagining Santa’s spare time. In our series of Christmas cards, we see him swap his red coat for a field jacket and embark on a round-the-world adventure as a humanitarian for Save the Children. Follow Santa on his journey, as he drops off emergency supplies in Mozambique or visits with new mums and bubs in the highlands of Papua New Guinea.

The cards come in a pack of ten, with five different designs, and there are even handy gift-tags available for those last-minute gift-wrapping needs. You can find them online, or in our retail shops around the country.

Stuck for a gift for that person in your life who has everything? Why not make a donation in their name, and help shape the future of children all around the world? 

When you give a Gift in Celebration Save the Children sends a card directly to the recipient, letting them know how their gift has helped save lives. This year we are also sending a little seasonal cheer in the form of a printable DIY decoration — an extra special token of our appreciation!

Wishing you an Eco-conscious Christmas!

Wishing you an Eco-conscious Christmas!

After a season of Spring cleaning spurred on by the likes of Marie Kondo, many people are re-considering their approach to Christmas gift ideas. To help take the stress out of giving, Save the Children’s op shops are at the ready to help you reduce, reuse and recycle this holiday season! 

Whether it’s a stylish outfit for Christmas day, or a vintage treasure for that special someone you scored in the family Kris Kringle — there is a waste-conscious something for everyone. You can find us conveniently located across Australia, so pop in and pick up that perfect, eco-friendly gift AND help create better lives for children in Australia and overseas.
