Our past Christmas Giving Campaigns have been hugely successful with our generous community getting behind our initiatives to help make Christmas a little more special for those who are doing it tough. 

“Happiness does not result from what we GET, but what we GIVE.”

Christmas is a time for giving, sharing and celebrating… But the holiday season can also be a difficult time of year for many. With the generous support and donations from our local community, Youturn is committed to supporting and spreading a little joy each Christmas.

For many vulnerable young people and families experiencing hardship, a Christmas dinner simply isn’t a possibility and the giving and receiving of gifts is an unaffordable luxury.

If you are in a position to give and relieve the pressure off a family or young person doing it tough, there are a number of ways you can support.


Consider becoming a regular giver as there is a need all year round, Every act counts – no matter how small. (eg $5 or $10 each pay day, to help sustain and support throughout the year (not just at Christmas)

“Little by Little, a Little becomes a lot”
