The Straight Arrows Program Christmas Party provides a special day for children and families living with and affected by HIV in Victoria. Each year we provide gifts to the families with young children and teenagers to celebrate the holiday season. This year our goal is to distribute up to 75 Christmas gifts to children and teens and we need your help.
We are asking the community for your generous support in helping us provide presents to our children and making this a Christmas to remember.
How can I help?
- As an individual, you can purchase a gift(s) for the Christmas party through Simply Giving. All donated gifts will be sent to Living Positive Victoria in time for distribution before Christmas.
- Individuals, businesses and other organisations can make a tax deductible donation through GiveNow and add the word PRESENT to the notification field. With these funds, we will purchase Christmas presents on your behalf.
Who will receive the gifts I donate?
Children and teens assisted by Living Positive Victoria directly or indirectly will receive an age appropriate gift, either when they attend our Christmas party or distributed to their families prior to Christmas.
”My daughter had so much fun at the Christmas party. She loved the magician and the visit from Santa made her day. Thank you. It was lovely to see her so happy.”
“Things are difficult between me and my family and it’s just me and the kids at Christmas. It feels pretty lonely so it is really nice to be able to celebrate Christmas with other people and feel like we matter. My boys loved their presents. So thank you from us and Merry Christmas.”
Those who have accessed Straight Arrows services in the past are invited to attend the Christmas party on 20 December. You can RSVP below. The password is Santa.
