Christmas Donations

Christmas is a tough time for families who are already struggling. Help us make Christmas a little easier for them and their families this year. All of the gifts are given to children in the care of someone other than their parents.

There are 3 ways you can help:

1. Head to our Online Christmas Shop where you can donate towards a Christmas gift

2. Drop off unwrapped gifts at one of our drop-off points (you can drop off any new gift OR fulfill a "wish" that will be under the tree)

3. Donate directly via our website or directly to our bank account with the reference: XMAS 2021

Account Name: Kids in Need Waikato Charitable Trust

Account Number: 12 3268 0100452 00

If you would like a donation receipt please email us at: admin@kidsinneed.co.nz with your full name and address.

Christmas FAQs

If you can't find your answer here - please get in touch with us HERE.

Who are the gifts going to?

All of the gifts will be going to children being raised by someone other than their parents (grandparents, aunties, uncles, siblings or carers).

Should I wrap my gift?

No. We want to make sure we give the perfect gift to each child which means we need to see it. 

Where can I drop off my gift?

Can I donate preloved toys for gifts?

No. We are only accepting new items for Christmas presents.

How do the wishes work?

Some children have specific items they would love for Christmas. On Facebook, and under (or on) the Christmas tree at each drop off location there are some wishes from children. You can take a wish, purchase that gift, and drop it off unwrapped under the tree (and attach the wish to the gift so we can keep track of it). There aren't wishes for every single child, so any presents are gratefully accepted.

How does the Kids in Need Waikato Online Christmas Shop work?

We are excited to give you the opportunity to donate towards specific items this year. You pick the type of gift you’d like to donate towards, make your donation and then we will purchase a gift within that category on your behalf. 

Can I have a donation receipt for my donation?

Absolutely! If you’d like a donation receipt for tax purposes, please email admin@kidsinneed.co.nz with your full name and address and we will send that out to you.

What is the latest I can drop off my gift?

It’s a big job organising all of our Christmas gift donations, we’d love all gifts dropped off by Friday 17th December so our Christmas elves can get to work wrapping and delivering before Christmas. 

We would love to help collect gifts, how do we do that?

Thank you so much for wanting to encourage others to give this Christmas - if you’d like to organise a Christmas gift collection please just make sure all gifts are unwrapped and your gifts are dropped off to the Kids in Need Waikato shed by Friday 17th December.
