Support SA kids this Christmas with our Reverse Advent Calendar

Want to give a gift that keeps on giving? Support a local kids’ charity this Christmas and pack your very own Treasure Box.

Every day of the year, Treasure Boxes provides vulnerable families experiencing severe disadvantage with the childhood essentials they need. The families we support struggle every single day – not just during Christmas.

Our 2023 Reverse Advent Calendars are here!

Take part in our Reverse Advent Calendar! Pull out a box, pick an age group, and collect an item for each day of the month. By the time Christmas arrives, you will have created a special Treasure Box to provide support and comfort to disadvantaged babies, kids and teens in SA.

Save your chosen Advent calendar to your camera roll, print it out and stick it on the fridge, or better yet – email it to your office and get the whole team involved! All Treasure Boxes collected will brighten the day of a South Australian family in need.

That’s ok! These 21 items represent some of the things we include in our standard Treasure Box. We can add any extra items needed to complete your box.

Some items we can only rehome when they’re brand new or unopened packets – such as socks, undies, toiletries, and some baby items like teats or dummies. But we’re big fans of recycling and encourage all other donations of great-quality, pre-loved items!

We appreciate the special touch of a wrapped present, however, to ensure a consistent standard of quality and safety, all items are checked by Treasure Boxes before being sent out and cannot be wrapped for this.

Yes, you can.

We do receive last minute requests from our families for toys for their children at Christmas, however our priority is providing the essentials they need for their safety and wellbeing. Your donations may be sent to families before Christmas Day or into the new year depending on the needs of our families.

Happy holiday season!
