Christmas 4 Kids in Care

Thank you to all who contributed to our 2020 Christmas 4 Kids in Care. What a success!  
With your help we provided 4,400 children in out of home care, emergency accommodation and refuges something to smile about this Christmas.  

Backpacks 4 VIC Kids (B4VK) is a not for profit who provides My Essentials Packs to vulnerable children who find themselves in out of home care or emergency accommodation, and who are often removed from their homes with little more than the clothes they have on at the time. 


B4VK are asking for your support again this Christmas.

Christmas 4 Kids in Care has been providing children with a Santa sack of presents since 2016. Giving a child a reason to smile at a time when it is hard to be happy, is the reason we are asking for your support this Christmas. This can be an especially difficult time which is why Christmas 4 Kids in Care has become a wonderful distraction for so many disadvantaged children.


What are we aiming for:                               

To deliver 2500 B4VK Santa Sacks to disadvantaged children with a total of 10,000  presents at a donation value of $150,000


What we currently have:                              

960 Santa sacks, 1900 presents at a donation value of $30,000


What we give to each child:                         

Four items containing in a Santa sack including:


  • something to cuddle (age appropriate) ,

  • a book 

  • two other presents (toys)

With your help we want to continue to brighten the lives of children in need through the delivery of a B4VK Santa Sack filled with presents. As a not-for-profit, we receive no government funding and rely solely on donations. We are a family-oriented community charity that works tirelessly to ensure vulnerable children are valued and never forgotten.
