Making a Difference

Decorate a Christmas gift bag to send to disadvantaged kids in Vietnam. The gift bags will be sent to Vietnam, along with 100% of any funds raised from the event which will be used to buy bikes for kids this Christmas.

Vang's Presents

Many children like Vang at our partner community in Vietnam have never received a Christmas gift. "I know on Christmas Day Santa Claus will give gifts to children, but I never received a gift from Santa Claus ... I would like a warm coat for Christmas." Thanks to our Christmas Crafternoon participants and our incredible donors, we were able to provide 510 children with a Christmas gift.

For Phong & Friends

Thanks to the generosity of our Crafternoon participants and community sponsors, we were able to raise money to provide Phong (and many kids like him) a warm winter coat. “ I am so happy and thankful to Good Neighbours Australia because I have warm clothes this winter. These gifts are very meaningful to me and my family at this time.”

Moo Jin's Wish

Moo Jin's family lives through farming. However, it is not enough to cover for his family’s needs. With no budget left for transportation, Moo Jin and children like him had to walk hours to school. With the donation of bikes, Moo Jin expressed his gratitude and joy, promising that he would study well.
