Our Mission

Founded by a group of individuals from community organisations and the business sector and now run under the auspices of St Mary’s House of Welcome, The Big Give has just one Christmas wish – that no Australian should be alone on Christmas Day.

In making this wish come true, we believe we can help the community rediscover the true spirit of Christmas, and re-establish it as a time that unites people from all walks of life. It’s an opportunity for us to share our goodwill and to lend a hand and a smile to those in need.

The Big Give is about bringing business and community groups together to share the spirit of Christmas to those who are, for whatever reason, disadvantaged and marginalised in our community.
