Help transform the lives of young people like Amy this Christmas

Donate now

Amy is a brave 17-year-old survivor of childhood abuse and neglect.

And she’s sleeping rough – not by her own choice, but because it’s her last resort.

My heart tells me – and I hope that yours does too – that Amy deserves more. Your generous Christmas gift will provide essential items to build and furnish our youth crisis accommodation.

Visit to see what Christmas gifts you can “buy” and select your items online.

Your life-changing shopping spree can include goodies like:

  • A humble pack of toilet paper for our loos!
  • A pillow and doona for our beds!
  • A fridge chockers with fresh food!

If you’re feeling incredibly generous, you can give a whole room!

The ordinary items you provide will give young people like Amy the most extraordinary Christmas gift of all.

A chance to recover from a lifetime of neglect and abuse, and build a new future.

And it’ll be thanks to your compassion and dedication to improving the lives of others.

With heartfelt thanks,

Vicki Sutton

  • Gift vouchers this Christmas

    When you’ve had a tough year, a tree without gifts can be heartbreaking on Christmas morning… Especially for children. You can help make sure no one misses out by giving a Gift Voucher through Melbourne City Mission.

  • Help End Youth Homelessness

    Homelessness can be a traumatic, dangerous and isolating experience. Young people without a safe place to spend the night may be forced into unsafe housing, someone else’s couch or, in some cases, out on the street. Help us end youth homelessness!
