Empower Giving Tree


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

In 2022, 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 incarcerated, experiencing homelessness, fleeing domestic abuse, or having fallen on hard times for any number of other reasons.

The gifts are distributed through a network of respected charities with whom we are honoured to partner.

For 2023, our goal is to provide over 6,000 gifts to children in need this Christmas. Be part of our mission to make this holiday season special for these deserving children.
From your incredibly generous donations, we can help provide gifts for children and teenagers to have presents to open on Christmas morning.
