📛DEADLINE: Fri, 18 Nov (12 more sleeps!)‼️

🎁YOUR chance to make an actual, TANGIBLE difference to a child’s life this Christmas. Despite being trapped in Nauru detention for yet ANOTHER Christmas, it has not crushed these children’s hopes that perhaps they could get a 🎁pressie🎁from their wish lists.

🌈Would you like to help us make this possible? Would you like to help us make sure that EVERY SINGLE CHILD there has at least ONE of his/her wishes fulfilled?

At 💚We Care Nauru💚, we are working hard to send every child in detention a gift this Christmas. We know what these children want🎁🎁🎁, as there have been endless requests for some of the simplest of things that we take for granted, such as new clothes, runners (sports shoes), nutritious food and vitamins.


1. 🎄 FINANCIAL DONATION💌: (…/christmas-for-our-detained-children-i…) Every cent raised will go to our airfreight costs to send these items to Nauru, or to pay for requested clothing, food or vitamins.

Deadline: Friday, 18 Nov 2016.
– You can post – or, if in Melbourne, personally deliver – one/some of the requested items to our drop-off location (please PM for address).
– An easy way is to purchase some items online and let them deliver directly to our address.
– The deadline is so that we can wrap, pack & send all these pressies in time for Christmas.
