Thank you for the Great Xmas Giveaway 2023

Grandcarers SA was able to provide almost 200 children with Christmas gift packs, to a total value of over $18,000!

Below are some responses we received as a result of the Great Christmas Giveaway.

"Skye, Adrien and I would like to say thankyou to GrandcarersSA and its benefactors for supporting us during the year and for the “great giveaway”. Without your continued support and care we definitely would be in a pickle. The kids faces on Christmas Day were fantastic and I couldn’t wait for them to see the gorgeous gifts. I don’t know who was more excited!

Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts and we would like to wish you and your families all a Very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Happy New Year."

"I would like to thank you all in this wonderful organisation for the support given to us this year. I would also like to thank Coles and the library for the girls Christmas gifts. They were so appreciated, and made such a difference. Thank you all so much. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year."

"A Merry Christmas to all at Grandcarers SA – a big thank you for all your past help especially in 2023 – hope to keep in touch in 2024. Thank you for the amazing gifts for the kids, I had no idea how I was going to cope with Christmas but you made it possible. Thank you to those who collected gifts on our behalf, you did a great job!"

"My name is Hannah. I will be 10 1 week after Christmas. I want to thank you so much for the gifts you gave my nanny for me. I drew this picture for you. Thank you. I have told Santa that I want to feed the homeless for Christmas."

"Thank you so much for all of your support to my family this year. Thank you so much for helping us with the Great Give Away. I cannot express my sincere gratitude enough in words for all of your support to us, and especially what you have all done in putting these gifts together for my grandchildren and the many children in need.

This has taken a lot of pressure off me and will bring so much joy and laughter to my grandchildren (A BIG thank you to all who donated so many wonderful gifts!) "

"I just wanted to say a big thank you to you all for the gifts. They were certainly well thought out. The book for (name withheld) is awesome as was the Lego and all of the stuff for (name withheld).

He thought the mug was great and said he’d never seen a big mug like that. I know it's been a very busy time for everyone but I just wanted to say thank you to all involved. The commitment of everyone is amazing.  Have a Merry Christmas, thank you again."

"Thank you all for the generous bag of gifts for my grandchildren at Christmas time.  Since my daughter died I have been looking after 5 of them ranging from five to fifteen years. 

It is usually a happy home but I was very aware that they may have faced a disappointing Christmas morning due to the normal financial pressures of living and school and I was becoming depressed at the thought, especially for the little ones.

I was overjoyed when I found out about the Christmas Giveaway, it felt like light at the end of the tunnel.  Thank you so much again for the toys, books and puzzles, and thank you to Coles, Victor Harbor Library and Backpacks For Kids for the donations – you are life savers!"
