Take a tag, buy a gift, and make a smile this Christmas
Giving Tree 2018
Text “KOUT16 £10” to 70070 to donate £10 so KidsOut can purchase a toy for a disadvantaged child in refuge this Christmas!
Christmas is an exciting time for all children, but it can be difficult for those escaping domestic violence. While kids all over the country receive dozens of gifts during the holiday season, children living in refuge may not even expect to have one. Having already left their home, toys and all that is familiar, we at KidsOut believe that these children deserve more and through Giving Tree work to give them a Christmas to remember. Through the Giving Tree KidsOut are able to distribute a toy to every child living in a Women’s Aid Federation refuge during the festive period throughout the UK.
How do I take part?
Donate directly to KidsOut so we can buy a toy on your behalf!
To donate so KidsOut can purchase a toy for a disadvantaged child, text the code KOUT16 followed by a space and the amount to 70070. For example, to donate £10 you would text the following to 70070: KOUT16 £10

We’ll send enough tags for your office/club to hang on your Christmas tree (each has the fictional name and age of a child on the back)
The deadline to sign-up for Red Tags has passed. If you have signed up and not received your tags yet they should be on their way in the post to you soon.
We ask your company to deliver the gifts to one of six main collection areas: London, Leeds, Glasgow, Birmingham, Fleet, or Peterborough
KidsOut will collect the toys and distribute them to children living in refuge

In 2016 more than 300 companies signed up to participate in Giving Tree, with thousands of toys donated by employees, friends and customers. Designed to be a fun alternative to the more traditional Secret Santa, not only is it simple to get involved but a fun exercise for the whole office, with no cost to the company!
