Important information about our Packing Day and other events.
What to BRING to a packing or gifting day:
PLEASE NOTE: In 2021 all the Brigades will be altering their Packing Days in alignment with the local advice on group gatherings. The below information is general and the Brigade will provide more specific information on their Packing Day process for 2021 via their newsletters and Facebook posts. Please sign up to or check these for more information – thank you
Please ensure you bring comfortable shoes and clothes to pack and deliver in, as well as Christmas Cheers, Big Smiles, Crazy Christmas Hats, Water Bottles, Snacks and anything else you think you might need to keep you going throughout the day.
Donations are still welcome on the day (cash, non-perishable food & toys) and are hugely appreciated! There may even be raffle opportunities so bring along your small change.
If you did not complete an online form to register that included an indemnity form then please also bring your completed indemnity form, which will have been emailed to you.
What to do BEFORE Packing Day:
Donate Money to Feed Families:
We are all busy people and you may not have time to join Basket Buddies – we get it. Why not donate directly to the Brigade and we will do the shopping for you. A $50 donation feeds a family of four with both staples and festive foods – its so easy – just click on any of the donate now buttons on this page.
Remember all financial donations to the Magic Moments Basket Brigades over $2 are tax deductible, when you make your donation you will get an automated tax donation receipt – again too easy!
Toy raising and wishing tree kits:
We still need to collect hundreds of toys so we can provide smiles to children this year aged 0 to 14. If you can help by getting together a toy collection among friends, family, workmates or even your sporting club or school that would be awesome – any number of new toys are welcome.
Please contact us if you would like to collect toys as we need them to arrive prior to Packing Day. We have wishing tree kits with posters we can send to you or letters you can use to take to your local school or sports clubs.
What to DO at a packing or gifting day:
Come and help pack baskets, wrap toys and you can deliver the baskets too – it’s really up to you. We just need you to pre-register as we do have limited spaces and Basket Brigades are soooo much fun lots of people come year on year.
We do always welcome new volunteers but we really need you to register. The logistics of a Basket Brigade are significant and your registration to volunteer will help us.
Can't make it to a packing day? Here's how else you can help:
Where possible all of our brochures and marketing materials are donated by generous businesses who are keen supporters of the Basket Brigade. If you have a business and would like to support us give us a call or drop us an email – we would love to hear from you.
Looking for another way to help? Join our Basket Buddies Program!
Basket Buddies is a really simple way you can help to feed another family. Register to join our Basket Buddies and you will get sent a list of the items for the Basket. Each week when shopping just add another one or two items to your shopping trolley and before you know it you will have a basket ready to go.
Tell your family, friends and work colleagues about Basket Buddies and you can help to feed even more families – good on you! To register for our Basket Buddies program, click the button below.
As a grassroots organisation, we rely on the support of our incredible local sponsors and volunteers. Thanks to them, we've been able to do some truly amazing things..
