• Thank you, Australia

Generous donations from Australians across the country brought joy and hope last Christmas to many families facing extremely tough times.

The Salvation Army has issued a heartfelt thank-you to those who supported the Kmart Australia Wishing Tree Appeal last Christmas.

With the support of everyday Australians, the Salvos were able to make Christmas brighter for many families struggling to make ends meet.

“Thousands of families were assisted, and stories abound of how gratefully the toys and other gifts were received,” said Major Warren Elliot, The Salvation Army Public Relations Secretary for Victoria.

“Many spoke of the relief and joy they were able to experience knowing that their children were able to receive such lovely gifts at this special time of year.

“We know times have been tough lately, as our services have been facing increasing demand. Since the Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal began 36 years ago, we have been able to distribute an incredible 10 million gifts to Australian families in need.

“Thank you again for allowing us to deliver goodness and joy to so many. We look forward to doing it all over again this year.”
