About the Toy and Book Appeal

The Smith Family's Toy and Book Appeal is your opportunity to help bring a smile to a disadvantaged child's face this Christmas.

The Smith Family has a long and proud association with Christmas. The organisation was founded in 1922 when five businessmen decided to deliver toys to orphans on Christmas Eve. This year with your help, The Smith Family aims to deliver more than 45,000 new toys and 30,000 new books to children in need around Australia.

It's only Christmas when we share it and this gesture of goodwill ensures that all Australian families can come together at Christmas to share gifts and celebrate. The Smith Family continues to provide opportunities for disadvantaged Australians to participate fully in society and we believe that Christmas is a time when all Australians should feel they belong, regardless of circumstances.
