Christmas should be a special time for all children, regardless of their circumstances. Helping to make this happen in Australia each year is an army of big-hearted volunteers determined to deliver the best Christmas possible to kids in our community who may be doing it tough for various reasons.
Each year, thousands of children from around the country are chosen to take part in eight nationwide Christmas celebrations. Kids with serious illnesses, physical or intellectual impairment, victims of domestic violence, or living in underprivileged circumstances are invited through a network of charities, schools, and community groups to take part. The coordinated event is one of the biggest of its kind in Australia, involving a day of celebrity stage shows, fun rides, interactive games, food, face painting and of course a visit from Santa.
While smiles should be free, the reality is that these events require substantial funding to happen. For 2022, Yamaha Motor Australia has donated $16,000 to ensure the eight Special Children's Christmas Parties being held around Australia are the best yet. Yamaha staff will also once again be on hand to help make the day a huge success.
