Let's get Aussie students back on the same page this year
The past 12 months have been difficult for many Australians, but it's been especially tough for the 1.4 million children and young people living in financial hardship.
1 in 6 Australian young people regularly go without life's basics, and this often means they don't have what they need to learn. Poor educational outcomes can lead to reduced employment opportunities, lower income levels and eventually result in lesser opportunities for the next generation. This is the heartbreaking cycle of disadvantage.
But you can help. Your generous donation will help Aussie students get back on the same page this year.
The list below shows exactly what's needed by disadvantaged children, teens and their families - items such as school shoes, books, stationery, uniforms and laptops.
The list changes as new requests are identified by support organisations. You can use the brand new 'FUND' feature to donate the exact money required for GIVIT to purchase the requested items. 100% of donated funds received will be used to help young people make the best possible start to 2021.
Have something to give that's not requested above?
Listing your donation will make it visible and available to charities and support organisations working with vulnerable children, teenagers and their families.
Help the growing number of Aussies who have NO internet access
Internet access is essential. We need your donations of new and second-hand personal tech items to support digital inclusion and end the digital divide.
