Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal 2020
The Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal collectively helping those in need with the power of $1
Now in its 33rd year, the Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal is Australia's largest and longest-running Christmas gift Appeal and has raised more than 8 million gifts for people doing it tough.
With just over 3 million people living below the poverty line, this year the Appeal invites the community to come together and contribute just $1 to their shopping trip. If every customer contributes a single dollar, collectively this can make a significant difference to those in need and help lift the financial burden during Christmas and beyond.
John Gualtieri, Kmart Director of Retail Australia and New Zealand, said, "Last Christmas we had over 5 million people per week visiting our stores. We're fortunate enough to reach a large number of the generous community - if every person visiting us during Christmas gives a small amount such as $1, together, we can make a remarkable impact."
Gualtieri added, "We are proud to continue the tradition that is the Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal and work with our partner to support those facing hardship."
Janine Kewming, Head of Fundraising for The Salvation Army thanked supporters of the Appeal and explained how their contributions help transform lives.
"The Salvos assist three times as many people at Christmas compared to any other time of the year. We are often working with individuals and families who are dealing with sudden crisis and financial burdens. Through the generosity of those giving to the Appeal, these contributions allow us to provide support to parents with the purchase of back-to-school supplies, intensive case management, financial counselling, or perhaps, a box of groceries to see them through a tough time."
The Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal will be available in stores from Monday 11 November and will be officially launched in stores from Tuesday 12 November. Gift contributions will be accepted until Christmas Eve, 24 December 2019 and financial contributions until 31 January 2020.
