Where will the funds go?
The money you raise will help The Salvation Army help more than one million disadvantaged Australians each year without discrimination, including people who are hungry, homeless, abandoned or abused. That's one person every 30 seconds.
The need is growing all the time. We have many heart-warming stories that owe their success to caring individuals like you. In fact, there are people out there right now whose lives could be changed because of you.
