If you haven't done so yet, please consider donating to the Kmart Wishing Tree Appeal. It is guaranteed to make a lot of kids and adults happy over the Christmas period. All gifts will go to the Salvation Army and will be distributed evenly along all national branches. It's a fantastic cause to back up!
Though I have spoken to some staff at our local Kmart and also with staff from other Kmart shops and it seems boys and adults miss out the most.
I tend to agree. I walked into our local Kmart this afternoon and there was a large pile of purple and pink gifts for girls, about 20% for the boys and 10% for adults. So I felt a bit sad and disappointed
Im on a very very small income, but seeing the boys being that under appreciated, I decided to add an extra 3 boys toys to my donation from last week. They're only small toys as I cant afford much, but still....
Next week when I get my pension, I'll add a gift for a grandfather and a gift for a grandmother.
So again, if you have a few dollars left after your Christmas shopping is done, perhaps consider spending those few dollars on a gift for the KMart Wishing Tree Appeal
