Fountaindale-based business Koala Cards has partnered with children’s charity Bravehearts to bring back the wonder and excitement of Christmas for children with its Send a Card to Santa campaign.
After a tumultuous 2021 which saw children miss out on birthday parties, school, playdates and more, Send a Card to Santa is connecting all the little “brave hearts” with Santa Claus in the North Pole.
With just two weeks left for the mail to make its way to the North Pole and back, Koala Cards is encouraging children to write to Santa soon, so they know if they’ve made it onto his good list in time.
The jolly man himself will send a swift reply and children will even receive a little gift for their Christmas tree!
“Christmas is such a wonderful time of year and after another tough time with restrictions for many families, it’s lovely to be able to bring back the excitement of Christmas with this special experience,” Koala Cards Managing Director, Reuben Machin, said.
“Children across Australia can discover the joy of writing Santa a card, letting him know their Christmas wishes, and then posting it to him in the mail.
“Our special online mail tracker can even show the mail’s journey as it travels to and from the North Pole.”
Koala Cards has teamed up with Bravehearts for the campaign to support the work it does to keep children safe across Australia and $2 from every card will be donated directly to the organiosation.
“Bravehearts is Australia’s leading child protection organisation working holistically to prevent child sexual assault and exploitation,” CEO Alison Geale said.
“Our role is to educate, empower and protect Australian children which is why we are delighted to be working with Koala Cards on a campaign that can bring so much joy to all children.
“Together with Koala Cards we have set a goal to raise $80,000 this Christmas season, to help Bravehearts continue its vital services to children, adults and families who have been affected by child sexual assault.
“The funds raised will go towards supporting Bravehearts’ personal safety education programs, counselling, child protection training, advocacy
Cards need to be sent off by December 10.
