The Qld Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services together with ABC Radio are helping bring a smile to the faces of more than 8000 Queensland children this Christmas who live away from home in order to be kept safe from abuse or neglect.
The aim is a simple one: to make sure all children in care across QLD receive at least one present this Christmas.
So how can you get involved? Simply drop off a suitable gift or voucher to the Appeal at your closest collection point by Friday 13 December 2013.
ABC Shops are offering 10% off gifts purchased for the Kids in Care Christmas Appeal.
From there gifts will be distributed to children in care across the state.

Who to buy for and what to buy? There are over 8000 children ranging from babies to children who are 17 years old. If you can keep the cost to around $20 – $25 that would be perfect.
