For 26 years, Kmart together with The Salvation Army has been working to help make Christmas brighter for thousands of families in need.
The Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal is Australia’s largest Christmas gift appeal. Thanks to the incredible generosity of Australians, the Appeal has collected more 6 million gifts for people in need over the past 26 years.
Kmart uses its network of stores as gift collection points, assisting charity groups at Christmas time. The Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal runs from November until Christmas Eve.
Calibre is again this year collecting presents on behalf of the Kmart Christmas Appeal. We will have a tree at our office on 191 Musgrave Road, Red Hill where you can bring your gifts to donate. Simply take a gift tag from the tree and specify the age and gender of a suitable recipient, place it with your gift (wrapped or unwrapped) under the Wishing Tree. Gifts do not need to be purchased from Kmart. They can be purchased from any retailer or handmade.
We notice every year that teens and seniors tend to be under-represented. Kmart is generally inundated with toys for younger children. Please feel free to give us a call for suggestions and ideas of what to buy for these groups. www.wishingtree.kmart.com.au also provides a list of products that may be suitable.
Share the joy of giving!
