About the Toy and Book Appeal

The Smith Family's Toy & Book appeal is your opportunity to help bring a smile to a disadvantaged child's face this Christmas. Sadly, thousands of Australian kids will go without recieving a gift this holiday season simply because their families can't afford it. This year, with your help The Smith Family aim to deliver 60,000 new toys and 40,000 new books to children in need around Australia. 

Our Toy & Book appeal is part of our Christmas 'Stocking Exchange" which provides gifts to help children in need, allowing them to feel a sense of belonging this Christmas. Your generous gifts will help them acquire the skills and knowledge they need to build a better future. 

Thank you for your generosity. After all, it's only Christmas when we sare it. 

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. Since then we have grown, developed and changed to meet the needs of an ever-changing society, but we still deliver toys and books to disadvantaged children at Christmas.
