Special gift

AS we focus on our Christmas shopping, please spare a thought for others. Once you have bought the presents you need for family and friends, consider one more gift for someone who really needs it.

One more gift to Red Cross will help ensure an older or isolated person gets a phone call every day to check they are OK, clean water for a young child in a remote village in Myanmar, or a shower and a meal for a teenager sleeping rough.

This Christmas I urge everyone to consider making one more gift to Red Cross. To make your gift to Red Cross call 1800 811 700 or go to redcross.org.au
