Dear Santa 2023

Dear Santa 2023

Thanks to your kindness and generosity we’re delighted to report that our Dear Santa 2023 Christmas present appeal provided over 1300 gifts for children and young people who have been harmed by crime. The heartwarming display of support from individuals, businesses, and volunteers has truly made a difference in the lives of these deserving children.

Many of the families referred for Dear Santa are experiencing poverty and there is little spare cash for Christmas presents. They are suffering trauma because of sexual abuse, domestic violence, neglect, and some are grieving the loss of a close family member – killed through crime.

The kindness and generosity of everyone who contributed to the success of our campaign has ensured that these children experience the magic of the holiday season despite the challenges they have endured.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone at Team Embrace!
