To participate, simply follow these steps:
1. Choose a gift to purchase from any of the sellers who appear on this page
2. Use the seller’s promotional code to receive free delivery for your donated gift sent direct to GIVIT, each seller may have a different code so please check
3. GIVIT will ship your donated gift to one of its charity partners in a bushfire affected region
4. Feel great knowing you’ve made someone’s Christmas a little brighter To make sure your gift gets there in time for Christmas morning head to handmadecanberra.com.au/givit and place your order by 24th December 2020. This appeal also has great financial flow-on effects as many of the 120 stallholders selling upwards of 1,200 products are also from fire-affected regions, such as Guerilla Roasters in Moruya. "Not so long ago we couldn't even access our coffee roastery due to fire and road closures," said Handmade stallholder and Head of Sales at Guerilla Roasters, Aymee Wise. "But thanks to the nationwide compassion shown to our little business we are getting back on our feet, and we're stoked to be a part of the contactless Christmas Appeal." Aymee reckons coffee is a fantastic gift to give. "Giving the gift of coffee is really about giving the gift of a chat and connection with a friend or loved one - the best gift of all!"
The Appeal runs until 24th December 2020. To make sure your gift gets there in time for Christmas morning head to handmadecanberra.com.au/givit.
