One in every one hundred Australian families have a child on the autism spectrum. One in five Australians have a disability. All of these families spend money throughout the year on therapy, specialised aids, accessible programs and other resources. As a result, spending at Christmas time is often limited and in some cases doesn't happen at all.
Teaming up with our partners at The Therapy Store, the Lend a Hand to Hugo Christmas Drive helps to ensure that these children not only have gifts under the tree, but that they are relevant to their individual needs.
With your support, we're aiming to raise $2,500 to lend a hand to as many of our beneficiaries as possible this Christmas, with 100% of your donations going towards funding specialised gifts for these wonderful families.
