Empower Giving Tree

Thank you for partnering with us to help make sure children in need get gifts this Christmas!

Every year, Empower Australia partners with local charities in our communities to provide Christmas gifts to children who would otherwise go without. These children and teenagers may have one or both parents in prison, be affected by homelessness, escaping domestic violence or belong to a family that is experiencing difficult circumstances. Your generosity will help ensure that children and teenagers aged 0 to 18 years old receive a gift this Christmas. 

In 2019, we donated 3000 gifts...

Our goal in 2020 is to provide over 5000 gifts to children in need this Christmas.
