The ABC Giving Tree Appeal is Tasmania’s biggest Christmas charity, celebrating over 30 years of generosity from the community. This year the Giving Tree has a focus on online giving, following what has been an incredibly tough year for many. 

Together, we can help by raising donations for Tasmanians most in need over the holiday season. Can you help us reach our target of $100,000? 

Proceeds from the Giving Tree Appeal are distributed between Launceston Benevolent Society, Launceston City Mission, St Vincent de Paul Society, The Salvation Army, Uniting Tasmania, Hobart City Mission, Mission Australia, Anglicare and Colony 47.

Charities will use the funds raised to purchase toys, gifts and food hampers for Tasmanian individuals and families requiring financial support over the holiday season. These cash donations will also allow charities to tailor what they purchase for each of their clients, including providing gift cards for parents to pick out something special for their children.

Join the Giving Tree Appeal and create your own fundraiser! Together we can make a difference for those who need it most. Plus, be a part of our very special Giving Tree Giveathon on Wednesday 9 December by creating your own fundraising event at your workplace or school and tune in to ABC Radio Hobart and ABC Northern Tasmania.
