One Less Present - The best gift is to give one up.

We can all change Christmas, one less present at a time.

One Less Present is a Christmas initiative run by Act for Kids, a national charity working tirelessly to prevent and treat child abuse and neglect.

Act for Kids delivers evidence based therapy for children, who have suffered trauma from physical, emotional and sexual abuse as well as support for families at risk.

The One Less Present movement encourages Australians to give up a gift and donate its value to Act for Kids.

This Christmas, it's not what's under the tree that matters. 2020 has seen many challenges for families across Australia.

So this year, we urge you to embrace the true spirit of Christmas and give one less present to help heal little hearts and minds.

May your holiday season be filled with love, laughter, happiness, and one less present.

Kindest regards,
Dr Katrina Lines
Chief Executive Officer - Act for Kids


Let's do without one gift, for kids who do without.

By now, you might be thinking about the long list of Christmas presents you've got to buy… Ask yourself, would you, your kids, or your family really notice if there was one less present under the tree this Christmas

One Less Present is the perfect way to embrace the true spirit of giving. Instead of buying another unnecessary gift, you can donate the money you would've spent on it to give neglected and abused kids in Australia the Christmas they never had.
