About this appeal


Many of us are thinking about how we’d like to celebrate Christmas and maybe what we’d like to be under the tree for our families—like a new phone, toys for the children, a holiday in the sun or just some quality family time.

But for those Kiwis living day-to-day just trying to make ends meet, Christmas is a time of stress, struggle and sadness.

Their Christmas wishes are typically more basic and urgent in nature—like a place to sleep for the night, a way to pay the bills that are piling up or just how to feed their family each night.

This Christmas, up to 17,000 families will turn to The Salvation Army for support. With your help, we can give them both the urgent and long-term support and guidance they desperately need.

Please help Kiwis in need this holiday season, by supporting our Christmas Appeal. Together, we can give families in crisis a happier Christmas and a brighter future.
