Empower Giving Tree

Every year, Empower Australia collaborates with local charities to provide Christmas gifts to children who would otherwise go without. Join us in ensuring that children in need receive gifts this Christmas!

In 2020, your generosity in supporting Empower Australia's Christmas Appeal and assisting us in donating over 5,000 gifts to children in need overwhelmed us.

These children and teenagers are considered vulnerable due to circumstances such as having one or both parents in prison, experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic violence, or belonging to a financially struggling family.

The donated gifts are distributed by a number of esteemed charities with whom we are pleased to collaborate.

there are two ways YOU can get involved
