GIVIT is the smart way to give to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across Australia experiencing hardship.
Through GIVIT, you can direct your generosity to change someone's health and wellbeing outcomes. Donating a laptop can help a child keep up with school assignments, giving nappies to a mum off work due to illness will help the family redirect grocery money to healthier food for their kids, donating new pillows will help a family set up in a new home after leaving a violent relationship.
Listed below is exactly what is needed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples doing it tough right now, including fridges, toiletries and laptops.
The list changes as requests are filled, and new needs are identified by support organisations providing essential assistance services. 100% of donated funds received by GIVIT will be used to purchase essential items identified by support organisations working directly with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across Australia.
Every donation helps.
Here's your chance to be part of a giving movement that is truly making a difference.
IKEA donation brings GIVIT staff to tears
A recent donation in Western Australia left GIVIT Engagement Officer Sarah Visser in tears, and provided some much-needed light at the end of the tunnel for a young First Nations girl caring for her unwell mum.
It gives me and my team a humbling experience to provide this family with this generous donation. It pulls on the heart strings when you see the family’s reaction with big eyes and a wide smile to match. It is really valuable to see Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families gain the right support to enable them to strengthen, build independence, and move forward in a more positive manner.
