Missed the mark? There’s a second chance for unwanted gifts

Posted on

Does it fill you with joy? If not, give it to someone in need.

With requests for assistance on not-for-profit donation platform GIVIT almost doubling since the beginning of the pandemic, there’s never been a better time to donate all of those unwanted Christmas gifts to someone in need.

GIVIT is making it easy for Canberra gift recipients to be the gift-givers, with thousands of requests for essential items currently registered on GIVIT in the ACT.

GIVIT is a national online platform working with more than 400 charities and support organisations across the ACT region to support vulnerable people. GIVIT.org.au eliminates the need for charities to sort, store and dispose of unrequested donations, saving valuable resources and time.  In the past year, GIVIT diverted almost two thousand tonnes from landfill into the hands of those who need them most.

By donating surplus Christmas presents or unwanted Secret Santa gifts, you’re helping GIVIT ensure that everyone can experience some joy over the holiday season.

GIVIT is currently requesting donations of toys for children escaping domestic violence situations, clothing and white goods for families suffering from financial hardship and toiletries for vulnerable people across the ACT.

If you have something to give, go to GIVIT.org.au and match your unwanted Christmas gift with someone else’s need. Giving via GIVIT is free with no fees or charges.

Get the feel-good factor and re-gift your unwanted Christmas presents to someone who needs them.
