Christmas (32)      Charities And Donations (13)     
A great list of how you can help some of the state's most disadvantaged people this Christmas

For so many people, Christmas is their favourite time of year filled with family, fun and festivities. But for many disadvantaged Western Australians, Christmas can be the most difficult time of the year – a time of feeling lonely or when the family budget is absolutely stretched to the limit. It’s a time of despair and desperation, but there are things you can do to help the less fortunate at Christmas. Here’s how you can help.

K-Mart Wishing Tree Appeal
Website

The famous Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal started in 1987 at an Adelaide store, when a team member suggested Kmart stores be the collection point for gifts for needy people.
There are two ways to give a gift - simply drop a gift off at any store, or you can can take a tag from the Wishing Tree at your local Kmart Store. On one end of the tag, note the appropriate age and gender of the gift recipient, then place the gift under the tree, and take the other half of the tag home with you.
