Donate to Kids in Need Waikato

Make Christmas special
for a child this year

Kids in Need Waikato believe that every child should experience the joy of opening a gift on Christmas morning, and that's why we need your help. This year you can help by:

  • Donating through our Online Christmas Shop
  • Dropping a gift off at one of our drop-off points
  • Donating directly to the Kids in Need Waikato Bank Account

Help us help Kids in Need

We love receiving donations from you and putting use to the things that are no longer needed. The kids that receive your donations are truly grateful.

Your donation helps support the running of the charity and the ability to supplement donated goods in care packs with items that are more personal and special to the child's needs. This might be for children anywhere between 0 and 17 years old.
