How does this gift work?

By giving a gift to a child or young person in Berry Street’s care, you are helping to provide items of comfort and hope.

The gifts are examples of items needed, and our staff and foster carers will use your donation to purchase items specifically chosen to meet the needs that they encounter every day.

Many children in our care haven’t received gifts or new items of their own before, and don’t have the opportunities that other children take for granted. A gift purchased just for them, helps to show them that they are special and loved.

The situation and need for each child and family is different, and your gift will help to ensure children and families needing help can get the practical items they need, specifically chosen for them, as well as special gifts and opportunities to give them hope for the future.

All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and a receipt will be emailed to you once you complete your purchase.

How to set up your Celebration Fundraiser

Make your special occasion even more memorable by fundraising for Berry Street!

For your birthday, wedding or other celebration, ask your friends and family to buy gifts online through our gift catalogue instead of giving you presents.

First, start your fundraiser by creating your celebration page. This includes a celebration image of your choosing (eg. your photo, balloons, cake) and a wish list of gifts you’d like to highlight. For extra motivation, you can even set a gift target.

Next, share your page to inspire donations and support. Make sure to check your page throughout your fundraiser to see messages from friends and family.

Every gift given will help us continue our important work supporting children, young people and families to be safe, thriving and hopeful.
