What is the Giving Tree?
Designed to be a fun alternative to the traditional Secret Santa, Giving Tree is not only simple to get involved with but a fun exercise for the whole office!
KidsOut’s Giving Tree is inviting firms and individuals to ‘Ditch Secret Santa’ and buy toys for children in local refuge homes and other children across the country who are in great need. The recipients are children who have escaped domestic violence, being forced to flee their homes quickly and leave all possessions behind. Without our Giving Tree, these children may not otherwise receive a gift at Christmas.
Anyone can take part and organisations are encouraged to advertise the opportunity to staff via their Intranet or email so that even if they are working from home they can still participate as if they were in the office.
How does it work?
Taking part is simple. Here are four easy steps explaining the Giving Tree shop process:
- Click Shop Now to be taken to the products and dreams pages.
- Select the toys and dreams you would like to donate and purchase at the checkout. (Please note that the price charged includes some costs for distribution)
- You will receive confirmation of your order but it will not be delivered to you but instead will be delivered to KidsOut for distribution to a refuge to support a child in great need.
- You will also be asked if you want to include Gift Aid on your donation.
