Throughout the year I put extra food items in my shopping trolley to donate to Christmas charity hampers. Everyone deserves to feel special at Christmas and to enjoy a good meal and have some treats. I think about other people sitting down to eat their food when I am enjoying Christmas lunch with my family. It warms my heart and makes me feel a part of a wider community.

  • Such a wonderful gesture to make some-one else’s Christmas special!


  • woolies had a thing going on this year. you scan the item so that you were able to pay for an item and then donate it to charity.


  • I do that, but its also important to put gifts under the giving tree.


  • What a fantastic idea. You are a wonderful person

    • You are very kind! x
      I do it because it makes me feel good to think that something small can make a difference. Christmas is about love, family and community.


  • It’s a great idea. And also that you do the shopping throughout the year. You are surely making some Australian family very happy! :-)

    • I do hope it makes a difference at Christmas time – it is all about community. :)


  • What a lovely thing to do. What charities do you pass the foods on to?

    • We have local charities/organsiations that make up the hampers and distribute them to those in need at Christmas. Your local area should have similar organisations.
