Christmas 4 Kids in Care
We invite you to share the spirit of generosity by giving back in a meaningful way this Christmas.
B4VK’s Christmas 4 Kids in Care program was established in 2016 to bring joy to children in care who are likely to receive very little at Christmas time.
Did you know that on any given night in Victoria, more than 15,000 children and young people live in out-of-home care? Half of all children in care are then moved, often more than 3 times, to different homes and families.
With your help, we can give 6,500 children in out-of-home care, emergency accommodation and refuges a reason to smile this Christmas.
Each child receives four presents in a handmade Santa sack:
something to cuddle (age appropriate)
a book and two other presents (an activity-based toy and an educational toy)
We are aiming to pack and distribute:
6,500 B4VK Santa Packs in 2022
That's about 37,500 presents at a donation value of $650,000 to children often forgotten.
Can you help us make it a Christmas to smile for children in out of home care and emergency accommodation?
