The past year has left an impact on our communities that will likely be felt for years to come.

But you can help a child in your community have a happy holiday this year.

When the Covid came to Aotearoa, children across the country were trapped in violent homes full of uncertainty; and they continue to feel the impact on their healing and recovery even now.

With the help of valued supporters like you, we were able to answer thousands of calls, relocate families to safe new homes, and offer children the education they need to live free from violence.

But many are still struggling and need your help.

You have the opportunity to ensure a child in Canterbury has a present to open on Christmas morning.

Bring a gift to The Loft (Level 1, Eastgate Shopping Centre) by Friday, 11 December to support children and families impacted by family and sexual violence in Covid-19.

Alternatively, you can make a donation directly toward Aviva services below.




Don't know what sort of gift to give? Here are some ideas:

·         New children’s books, games, and toys

·         New clothes

·         Sports equipment

·         Presents for older teens

·         Presents for Mum, Dad, or other parental figures

·         Petrol and grocery vouchers

·         Warehouse and mall vouchers

·         Entertainment passes for families

·         Cell phone top-ups

·         Wrapping paper and gift tags

Gifts must be unwrapped. Aviva cannot accept toy weapons such as nerf guns or water pistols.

Thank you for your support! Meri Kirihimete and happy holidays!
